Your mistake was in using CMS to upload the wiki.war file. The correct way to add the wiki to the portal is to copy the wiki.war file to the server/xxx/deploy directory.
After I unzip the wiki.zip file and put the wiki.war file in my deploy folder
I get errors in the tab where I added the wiki.
HTTP Status 500 -

I put the first few lines a the last few lines. Does this mean anything to you guys? I am not a Java person.

I hate to bother you guys again but when I drop the wiki.war file into my deployer folder it fails
with the errors and warnings on my previous message.
Am I missing a step? Should I edit a file?

I'm running the wiki on Portal 2.6.2. All I did was drop the wiki.war into the deploy folder. As far as I know, the wiki does not use the database (it stores the wiki contents on disk), so I do not think that the errors are necessarily wiki related.
A few thoughts:
1) I'm not sure if the wiki has been updated to run on 2.6.3 (I haven't tried it, and judging from earlier posts the wiki tends to be picky about which Portal version it runs with). Try running it on 2.6.2, if that works, you need to use that version.
2) Did you start over from scratch with an empty database? Perhaps the wiki contents being in CMS is causing the issue. I would first bring up just the Portal (with a clean install and clean database), and after verifying that that is running, I would bring down the app server, copy the wiki.war to the deploy folder, and then start it again.
Following you last email, I went ahead and downloaded jboss-portal-2.6.2.GA and installing I them deployed the wiki.war
file and it automatically creates a TAB on my default page. When I clicked on the Wikiportlet tab I get the same errors.
You mentioned something (2) about databases. Maybe that is where I am going wrong. I have not done anything with databases.
I know that I did not have any problems in 2.63 until I deploy the wiki.war, I was able to deploy the IFrame without errors.
Am I supposed to set up a database before I can deploy the wiki?

I assume that you are using the JBoss Portal + JBossAS bundle. I base this on you statement that you never set up a database - the bundle comes with Hypersonic set up as the database.
I downloaded the 2.6.2 bundle, deployed wiki.war, and started the portal. Works fine. I then repeated this with the 2.6.3 bundle. Works fine.
The exception you posted is what appears in the browser window. This usually is not all that helpful. There should be a corresponding stack trace in the console window, could you post that?
What operating system are you using? Which version of the JDK?
