$FarmPubDirUrl = 'http://www.mydomain.com/pmwiki/pub';

This should not be necessary and gives you just another thing to do
when you upgrade pmwiki. Don't rename pmwiki.php if you farm.

This may be the biggest error: Create your field directory NOT as a
subdirectory of pmwiki/, but in a distinct directory in the site root.

see above, example:

example (relative path to pmwiki.php from field index.php):
<?php include('../pmwiki/pmwiki.php'); ?>

if necessary, i.e. asked to do so when you open index.php in your

see point 6.
8. Create some pages. wiki.d should be a subdirectory of the field
directory, and not pmwiki/.

The field was never created. Instead wiki.d was created in pmwiki/
9. create field/pub/skins/ for field skin directories
10. create config.php in field directory/local/ i.e.
for field customizations.
$ScriptUrl = 'http://www.mydomain.com/kumamotoefl/index.php';
$PubDirUrl = 'http://www.mydomain.com/kumamotoefl/pub';
if you use cookbook scripts stored in the farm: pmwiki/cookbook/
then call any script like this from the field config.php:
Its important to use ".." instead of '..'
hope this helps!
