Well, I did as suggested and installed a new test wiki at 
http://www.pooq.com/wiki. It has the config listed below, (with is as 
suggested, with the addition of an $EnableDiag=1):

   <?php if (!defined('PmWiki')) exit();
   ## Title of this wiki
   $WikiTitle = 'Wiki One';

   ## Produce a unique cookie prefix for this site.
   $CookiePrefix = substr($tmp = md5(__FILE__), 0, 5).'_';

   ## Set an administrative password.  (String from ?action=crypt)

   ## Enable graphical user interface buttons on edit pages.
   $EnableGUIButtons = 1;

   ## Enable RSS and Atom web feeds.
   if ($action == 'rss' || $action == 'atom') {
     include_once("$FarmD/scripts/feeds.php"); }

   $FarmPubDirUrl = "http://www.pooq.com/wiki/farmpub";
   $EnablePathInfo = 1;
   $ScriptUrl = "http://www.pooq.com/wiki";

   $EnableDiag = 1;

I could NOT get clean URLs to work at all. If I use an URL like


I can visit that page. If, instead, I try this:


I get the main page. Its as if the PATH_INFO is not getting handed to 
PmWiki, but if I use action=diag, I can see that it is.

The relevant lines from the apache config are:

     Alias /wiki/farmpub       /var/www/pooq/pooq/wiki/farmpub
     Alias /wiki/pub           /var/www/pooq/pooq/wiki/pub
     Alias /wiki               /var/www/pooq/pooq/wiki/index.php
     <Directory /var/www/pooq/pooq/wiki>
         Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks

As I said before, this was all working fine under Apache 2.0.53 and PHP 
4.<something>. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I might try?
