my choice for this is/would be dokuwiki - it's very light, there's no
database or external things to go sideways, all your files are stored as
plain text if something does go wildly sideways, it's just text.  
should be very easy to recover/backup.   I've only ever tried to run it
under apache, but it ... might?  work with other webservers, probably
nginx fairly easily, maybe more.  I think the only thing it needs to run
is ... maybe php and a 'user that httpd runs as writable filesystem'. 
there are minimal bells/whistles to this, though.   user mgmt is
basically .ht files.
