Check out Lucene Written in Java also available for the .NET framework Here's a CodeProject article that explains how it works and how it's used. http://www.codeproject.com/KB/library/IntroducingLucene.aspx

You might want to try Knowledgetree, Liferay or Alfresco. Depends on your needs, but could even be good idea to use Redmine, Drupal, or Joomla. It quite depends on the case, people to maintain it, etc.

I strongly suggest you run through the Wiki Choice Wizard over at WikiMatrix.org

There are a couple things, but the basic objective (and thus approach) is the same. You want users to actually use the intranet: Have news or interesting company info (that changes) on the home page If your company has Yammer -- implement a yammer feed on the home page Give users some customization options (weather, if you have more than one office, let ...

I would argue that you should follow similar practises to external websites, as they are competitors for your employees time and attention. So usefulness and attractiveness are important. Your bosses may want the intranet to feature corporate messages, but the employees want useful information. It should be a place for fostering the relationships and ...

It really depends upon what's important to you. As far as the most Sharepoint-like solution goes, IMO Al Fresco is it (that's good to some, but bad to others... depends on what you need). For publishing of documents, Drupal and Joomla would be a better choice, and they can be extended very well with plugins provided by their large and active communities. ...

You kind of answered your own question just by thinking about the general internet. Intranets, like normal websites, should be: Useful - the user should be able to do something they cannot do elsewhere, or be able to do it better Usable - users should be able to find the content they want, interact with it, and achieve their goals. Attractive - enough ...

I found out my own answer to my question.... The problem was related to the base_url settings. I correct this problem by switching from: http://localhost/project_folder to http://my_ip/project_folder This was the reason why only resources were loading on my machine and not other machines. Thanks everyone who viewed my question and those who tried to ...

Whenever you use windows passwords to logon you should also use SSL. (This is more vital if you allow basic auth) This is to avoid privilege escalation both for your own users and as a multilayered security strategy.

Yes. It's possible that someone in your intranet is performing such an attack. Even though it's not as likely as on the (wild-wild-wild) internet. On the other hand you have to have something wrong in your configuration. the CSRF filter of alfresco (or alfresco itself, or on the tomcat container level) needs to have some configuration parameter to make CSRF ...

If you are after a Windows IIS based Intranet, I suggest either one of the following content management systems: DotNetNuke (Community version is available) Microsoft Sharepoint Both of these can link into your Windows Active Directory, and provide pretty good control over every aspect of the site (including granular security, so you allow that cafeteria ...

It sounds like what you need is a Content Management System (CMS). DotNetNuke is the most popular CMS that runs natively on IIS. If you're willing to install PHP on your IIS box then you could also look at PHP CMS's like Joomla and Drupal.

Drupal is a great option. Many coming from a Windows background will probably suggest SharePoint, and that may be a good option, but I've detailed reasons why I, in particular, recommend against it here: http://archstldev.com/node/545 I'm building out an Intranet on Drupal right now, and there are some good background materials on using Drupal for an ...

In short words: I see no reason why you should use a commercial cert. A self signed is - in this case - enough (IMHO). I just use Verisign (or cheaper GoDaddy) certs for E-Commerce because the costumer can be sure, that the identity of the owner was checked. To set up your own CA (which in your case should contain a root cert and many "sub"-certs), programs ...

I've used Sphider before and have been quite impressed.

DokuWiki http://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki It has user authentication built in to prevent unauthorized access.

If you are looking for a cms you can use Drupal, it's a great option, there's a LDAP module so you can use with Active Directory. Sharepoint Foundations is great too like @Phil points out, but only runs on windows.

If you have open wireless access for your visitors on the same network, and it's not served over https then it's easy for visitors to intercept other people's network traffic to your intranet.


2

If the content on your network is sensitive and there are users who do not have the privileges required to view some or all of that content then you will want to use SSL on your intranet. Fortunately setting up SSL on your Intranet isn't difficult and you can use a self signed certificate since there is no need to verify your company's identy.


2

But let's say you want people from your LAN to have full access, without being prompted for a password. In this scenario we could use: <Directory /home/www/site1/private> AuthUserFile /home/www/site1-passwd AuthType Basic AuthName MySite Require valid-user Order allow,deny Allow from 172.17.10 Satisfy any </Directory> This will ...

SHA* or MD5 are not encryption. They generate hashes. Hashes are one way, in that once you have something it is unrecoverable (unless you have a known value associated with a known hash). Hashes are ok for non-critical passwords. You may recall recent news where LinkedIn had a number of accounts stolen. Attackers got a copy of their user table. Their ...

First off, are you adding these directives in an .htaccess file or a config file? If the latter, then you need to restart Apache. Secondly, do you have mod_authz_host enabled? In your httpd.conf, there should be a line like: LoadModule authz_host_module modules/mod_authz_host.so Lastly, are you sure it's not working? I.e. are you testing the right ...

It could very well be that it is your internal users. One quick check you can do is look at the # of visitors on the Global and Country map your company is located in for 1 weeks worth of data before Aug 12th and compare it to a weeks worth of data after Aug 12th. If it was because of a drop in internal traffic, then you should ratio of visits from your ...

Many testimonials are available from major mediawiki users http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_testimonials Now here's a particularly challenging application I doubt you'll be seeing on Confluence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellipedia

I would say there are NO good alternatives to mediawiki other than Wordpress, another open source platform. Both have many extensions and are guaranteed to stick around for a very long time, probably forever. Here's an example of a simple intranet based on Wordpress (which I haven't used and don't recommend except as a guide to features) ...

I just installed Sharepoint Foundations and it was easy to set up and the quite powerful. The best part about it is that it's free! I don't know what you're using, but it connects instantly with active directory (AD) if it's on the same domain as the AD server.

I believe it's all to do with personalisation and flexibility. Users have to be able to personlise the intranet to their liking. It's a tool to help them work effectively. Not everyone has the same job and people certainly don't all work the same way. Users should be able to choose the colours, which modules/information boxes are displayed and where on ...
