Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I did some research to find suitable alternatives/clones to Stack Exchange because I want to create my own self-hosted Q&A site.

The best one I found was OSQA. Are there better ones, preferably coded in PHP (as I already got some knowledge there).

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Just curious, is it for a company or for a generic topic? – TheLQ Sep 15 '10 at 22:40
...and as "the best one I found" suggests you might have found more: please at the ones you found to Stack Overflow Clones? too? – Arjan Nov 29 '10 at 9:33

There's also Shapado.

I wonder where they got their UI/design inspiration from? – Georg Fritzsche Sep 15 '10 at 22:53
Shapado is pretty expensive and I'd also like to self-host it. – Hedge Sep 15 '10 at 22:55
Shapado claims to be open source, so presumably self-hosting is an option. Perhaps someone who knows the exact situation could leave an answer here. – Scott Morrison Sep 15 '10 at 23:11
Very nice! I found the repository – Hedge Sep 15 '10 at 23:26
@ScottMorrison, This isn't in PHP. – Pacerier Jan 10 '15 at 17:21
