Wiki

Note that WIKI provides a site definition configuration for legacy wiki sites that were originally created in an earlier version of SharePoint Foundation. Because standard site pages on SGS sites are wiki-enabled pages, you do not need to create sites that are specifically for wikis.

By default, a global site template (GLOBAL#0) is added to all site definitions. You cannot explicitly create a site based on a global site template.

The following code example creates a site collection within a specified Web application.

PWebApplication webApp = new SPSite("http://MySiteCollection").WebApplication;
SPSiteCollection siteCollections = webApp.Sites;

SPSite newSiteCollection = siteCollections.Add("sites/Site_Name", 
    "Site_Title", "Site_Description", 1033, "STS#0", 
    "DOMAIN\\Owner", "Owner_Display_Name", 
    "Owner_Email", "DOMAIN\\Contact", 
    "Contact_Display_Name", "Contact_Email");
