For such things (and if you are using Apache) you need to set-up the
mod_rewrite rules appropriately. Have a look at the Apache documentation for

Probably because they do not run just PmWiki but also other applications,
so having every URL rewritten to trigger PmWiki would not be appropriate.

Yes, but note that "wiki" in the host name, which probably means that
the relevant web server is dedicated to running a wiki.
