Oh.  Re-reading your earlier message, I notice:

Sorry for having missed this earlier, but the 'Upload' button
comes from the skin you're loading ("simple"), and that skin is
not creating the 'Upload' link correctly.  We'll have to get with
the skin author to see about fixing that, although I've been thinking
I might just rewrite it entirely to bring it up-to-date with the
latest standards.

You might try the system with the standard PmWiki skin just to
see if uploads start working then.  

Also, try setting

    $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = '';

to disable passwords and see if uploading works then.

By default PmWiki creates a separate folder in "uploads/" for each 
wikigroup, so that all of the pages in a group share the same set 
of attachments.  So, you'd have to actually move the file into 
"uploads/Main/file_name.jpg" and not just "uploads/file_name.jpg".

But better is to figure out why uploads aren't working.
