For major stuff like this, I use a virtualized dedicated Linux server. I 
use Proxmox, ( which uses a Debian Squeeze 
server. Then I install turnkey linux containers, which are 
per-configured VM "containers = complete package" , like DokuWiki and 
almost 100 other pre-configured containers. It's ALL there.

So, I use proxmox for the base install and turnkey for the content. You 
could have dokuWiki up and running correctly in about 3-4 minutes. I use 
it for WordPress. They are both Open Source and GPL'd, and only request 
payment for advanced support. So, if anyone has a spare machine to 
install to bare metal... Proxmox and Turnkey are great! You will need 
another machine on a localnet, with a browser, to admin the proxmox box. Ric
