Have you /tmp/..../wiki.d has been created with the proper permissions and 
owner ship? (What's the output of 'ls -ld')

Next step could be to manually copy some wiki page file to that directory
and get pmwiki to use it. This should be a simple matter of setting
$WikiDir as per Pm's earlier instructions, but one step at a time...


PS. Once we've have it working, it'd be nice with a page summing up how to
do this.
