Create a .htacess file in the farm's installation directory (where
pmwiki.php resides) with this:

   Order Deny, Allow
   Deny from All

and create another .htaccess file in the farm's pub/ directory with

   Allow from All

The first .htaccess file prevents public access to the farm
installation, including pmwiki.php and the scripts/ and cookbook/
directories. The second .htaccess file allows browser access to the
pub/ directory and its subdirectories like css/, guiedit/ and skins/.

This info used to be on page
but it has been removed (or moved to somewhere else, where?),
at this farm spring cleaning. I hope it will resurface again.
I am a bit concerned that so much information has been taken out,
and I have to look deep into page histories to find previous valuable
