Take a look at:
All are CMS', and all have a variety of optional plugin modules; I
*believe* all of them can use a variety of database backends (tikiwiki
utilizes PEAR-DB, which allows postres, mysql, odbc, and a handful of
others). The *nuke scripts are both in the debian archive; tikiwiki can
be found at http://tikiwiki.sourceforge.net/ .
