ooops, sorry. you're right. The last statement has of course _not_ to be
done. I only do this, because I'm not using *.php-scripts but *.incphp when
setting up own scripts and customization-scripts so I suppressed calling
any config.php by that, it's better for my testing, but only applies for

well, then I simply should change the way to update to another wiki-version
by copying the contents of the new installation archive into the existing
pmwiki-pgm-dir (?). If this is the way to do it (please tell me), I'll

oh, sorry, yes if I read it for myself - it's not very clear. I just
thought having a basic dir for pmwiki including a pmwiki-pgm-dir (the
contents of the installation-archive) and a user-stuff-dir and a basic
