Hello William,

I haven't tried that but I think the idea is interesting and could be very
useful. I did a quick search and found a few options that may o may not
work. Pmwiki only needs  a php server as far as I understand so we have Ultil
Droidphp <http://droidphp.github.io/> and here there is a good tutorial

I haven't tested none of them but I surely sometimes during this week will
try Ultil Server.

I hope this helps and looking forward to see your results
