Thanks for this, this put me on the right track :)
I upgraded to Fedora Core 4 last week, and installed pmwiki and it
worked okay. Today I managed to lose my menus, so I deleted the
installation and then restored from last nights backup. And the same
original problem occurred again! But this time I started
trouble-shooting and recording what I did to try to solve the problem.
Turns out it was a problem with permissions, If I made the pmwiki
folder 'rwxrwxrwx' and restart the server it works okay and with no
problems ...... but this is on a stand-alone machine with no outside
access to the server, its purely for my own internal usage and to play
Thanks again folks.
