You can use FengOffice, however, I don't think it has the ability to upload/download as office formats. There is EtherPad, which google docs docs is based off of, but it only has word documents, and I don't think it has upload/download either.
We installed the Lucene search engine, as used on Wikipedia, and the MWSearch extension that integrates it with MediaWiki. Lucene: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Lucene-search MWSearch: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:MWSearch Installation is complex, but when it's working, you can basically forget about it and let it run. An ...
There's Feng Office (community edition is self hosted). I've been playing with it and it's pretty straightforward.
The advantages of using an hosted solution is that you don't need to care about installing, configuring and, mostly important, monitoring the application. The provider will take care of all system administration tasks for you. Conversely, usually you can't pretend the same customization level provided by self-installed applications. An other very good ...
Actually I myself have written something in the vein of google docs. It's backed by a mongoDb database. And I am willing to publish the source code of the project or send it to interested people. So hosting this on your own server would be no problem at all. You can find the application here: http://mgdx.net/ This was written completely in PHP. Currently ...
Not sure about the spreadsheet but you could use Etherpad for the document collaboration. Etherpad ... allows really real-time document collaboration for groups of users. Etherpad is open source; you can host your own Etherpad by downloading the source code or try Etherpad for free on one of the Public Sites. Hope this helps.
What kind of documentation do you need it for? Internal as in an intranet? External as in help docs? I've never heard of knowledgetree, but I'd have to agree with paintturtle. We used their free open source core product for our intranet at my old company and we're just starting to use their TCS "social knowledge base" for our help documentation where I am ...
There are several open source and paid platforms, but what you want to do must be done at the university level. If you set something up on your own you will spend a lot of time convincing your fellow students to join. Unless that is the official way to communicate, the professor will not get involved. These programs are called learning management systems. ...
Not sure if this helps you or not since like knowledge-tree, MindTouch TCS is a cloud-based business solution. It is an extremely flexible knowledge base created with keeping teams of business professionals in mind with it's WYSIWYG editor. The desktop connector helps you manage and import your Microsoft Office documents --- so no new tools to learn. :) If ...
I have been using Mitto for some time and would recommend it.
MindTouch Platform and MindTouch Core are both self-hosted. The UI is non-invasive and very clean. You can use MindTouch Platform in conjunction with the desktop connecter to import your docs. More steps than viewing a document in Google Docs, but does give you the security of your fire wall. And the WYSIWYG editor makes editing documents as simple as Word. ...
