Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am searching for an online documantation system to publish company information for employees (intranet). This information should include process descriptions and so on.

The ideal system should be:

  • very simple to use
  • free (open source)
  • small
  • running on apache with php/mysql
  • using an WYSIWYG editor

I found some examples of nice (but too big or too expensive) software systems:

The company I work for uses Trac for internal documentation resource. We also use Google Docs for things that don't require as much sensitivity and control.

For project documentation we use SVN to store project documents.

Thank you both, but I need a documentation system for documenting process and so on, not source code, I thought of a really simple cms but I am sure there must be a help/manual authoring system around anywhere. –  Wolfgang Sep 16 '12 at 7:55
    
Trac could work for tracking process. The wiki markup allows you to have it nicely formatted and searchable. The integration with SVN is an added bonus. Unless you're talking about something RoboHelp –  Dez Sep 17 '12 at 16:04

You could always use Google Sites, which is easy to use, especially if you're already using other Google Apps.

In my company we use Atlassian Confluence, which is used in many places, quite powerful and still easy to use.

Other than those, you could use a simple Wiki.

Not sure what you mean - Google Sites and Confluence are both simple CMS'es. Confluence is capable of source code formatting, but that's just a nifty feature - most of Confluence does not center around source code. –  Vidar S. Ramdal Sep 17 '12 at 8:33
