It generally does, which is why this has me a bit stumped at the
moment.  But we have a few more diagnostics to go through...

It's significant that .flock is being created, because that means
that PmWiki does have appropriate permissions to the wiki.d/
directory, so it largely rules out a permissions-related problem.
Out of curiosity, what are the permissions on .flock (i.e., the
output of "ls -l .flock")?

A page file doesn't get created in wiki.d/ until it is actually
being saved, so the fact that's it's not being created there
seems to indicate that the code is never reaching the page save
routine.  It's possible that $ScriptUrl isn't being properly

Assuming you still have $EnableDiag=1; in your config.php, can you run
the wiki with "?action=diag" and send me the output that results?
It'll just be a long list of variable settings, but those will often
tell me if there's anything "odd" about your particular PHP configuration.

We'll resolve this one way or another!  :-)
