The usage of World Wide Web (WWW) and Internet has increased tremendously in the past decade. WWW has changed the way humans now communicate. Initially when WWW was built, it was an application running on the internet. But now web has itself become a platform and numerous applications have been built making use of web-technology stack which run over the WWW. Online shopping portals and online automated systems, for e.g. Amazon and online railway ticket booking, are two hugely popular applications built using the same. Wiki is another such application exemplified by Wikipedia which has become one of the biggest knowledge repositories. Wiki has proven to be an excellent collaboration tool and lot of companies and organisations are using it for various projects and team management. Typically a web application is developed using an application server and a database server like the LAMP stack where Apache is used as web server, MySQL engine is used as the database engine and PHP is used as server-side programming language. In this work, we present a design on how to integrate a Wiki into the current architecture and demonstrate its feasibility. By making use of Wiki engine as a component in the web technology stack, people can build lot of web applications, depending on their needs, in a very easy and convenient way. It can be used in many different scenarios. We have also built a command like application known as Wiki Shell using which people can write queries to fetch information from Wiki Engine.
