Out of curiosity, what version of Apache?

Hmm. From your original post, you noted
: Digging a little deeper, I tried changing /pmwiki/pmwiki.php to
: /pmwiki/index.php and adjusting the .htaccess. When trying to access the
: pmwiki group, this resulted in the Apache error:
: Negotiation: discovered file(s) matching request: <path>/pmwiki/PmWiki
: (None could be negotiated)
so I wonder if Apache's content negotiation facilities are
getting in the way here. In particular, I wonder if it's
automatically looking for .php files that match any
Is the MultiViews option enabled? MultiViews will try to match
requests of the form "/some/dir/foo" to foo.* files in the
/some/dir directory. In this particular instance, for a request like
the MultiViews feature would search the /~marc/pmwiki directory
for any files matching PmWiki.*, and finding the pmwiki.php
directory it would switch the url to be
which sounds a lot like what you're seeing. (Also, this wouldn't
happen in the field wikis, since they don't have a 'pmwiki.php'
An interesting test would be to try creating pages in a "Readme"
group in your farm wiki and see if that works. If the MultiViews
theory is correct, then pages in a "Readme" group will have
the same problem as the "PmWiki" group, since there's a README.txt
file in the pmwiki/ directory.
Just a thought.
