    Mediawiki (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download), the software usually associated with the term "wiki", is a content management system.

    You can get themes for Wordpress that make the site look like a Wiki. Here's an example: http://wikiwp.com/

    Wiki's are usually associated with knowledge management sites.

    The major concept of a wiki is the collaboration of many users on a single project; the Wiki. Users will have to share their knowledge by editing, modifying, browsing for more information so that at the end of the day, the articles that are posted have a complete set of information on the subject at hand.
    Ex) Mediawiki

    CMS stands for Content Management System and is an application that allows one to create, edit and modify contents that are being published online. This works by admin registrations and the contents can be changed only by the administrators. The CMS can either be used as a formal or informal content publishing area.
    Ex) Joomla
