I'm looking for a way to import a MediaWiki site into a WSS 3.0's Wiki app.

I've found two ways to export wiki data from MediaWiki (the wiki engine used by Wikipedia). There is the MediaWikiDump (a relatively simple XML format). And then there's InstaView, which I've customised to export into WSS' Wiki format. The latter does not offer version history, but that is not a killer problem in my case.

So, now that I have my wiki data exportable, how do I import that into WSS 3.0's Wiki database content

I've looked for some stored procedures that are specific to the wiki data, but I'm guessing a standardized document-oriented stored-proc is being used instead.

What would you do at this point Are there any docs out there regarding the internals of the WSS 3.0 wiki data Is the doc-oriented proc (perhaps proc_AddDocument) the right way to go Where is the documentation on how to use proc_AddDocument

This seems like a trivial problem that would be immensely helpful to all those "legacy" wiki-ers out there that want to transition to WSS 3.0 for their team collaboration.

Thanks in advance!

You would think that if MS wants people to use this new feature they would provide a way to migrate the data (unless this feature targets new customers only).

I would lilke to know the answer as well. I have MediaWiki and want to migrate it to Sharepoint.

We are also looking for a way to import Wiki content into MOSS wiki at Stanford. Specifically we are looking to import TikiWiki and Confluence data into MOSS.

Confluence has ultilities to import data from other types of wiki. We would like to know if there are any import utilities for MOSS wiki.
