If you have suexec or some other system that causes the PHP scripts
to run as the client, then you shouldn't need to do the chmod 2777 or
chmod 777 step -- you can just skip it. However, if PmWiki won't create
the wiki.d directory, that probably means that your ISP has the mkdir
function disabled in PHP. In this case, you can just create the wiki.d
directory manually and things should work from there.
