[pmwiki-users] wiki farm terminology

PS: At the bottom of the original page (now bottom of the history)
it says:

"In general, fields can be created and administered from user accounts
other than the one maintaining the farm if the underlying operating
system permissions and PHP configuration settings allow it. PHP's
default configuration normally allows this, but some system
administrators and web hosting services change the PHP configuration
such that this is not possible."

This suggests to me that Pm had the independent setup of wikis in a
farm very much in mind, with multiple admins. Not just administering
wikis (fields), but even setting them up.

It seems this angle on wiki farms has been lost somewhat, probably
because of a prevalent view that one admin does it all.
