Yes, limited to ftp, with filezilla.

So, I move the "pmwiki-2.1.5" into my "wiki" folder/directory, and
this is a simple step.
Then I copy:
- wiki.d/ folder which contains the real site content, my own content;
- cookbook/ folder which contains the recipes I installed on my system;
- local/ folder which contains some setting files.

But then I have many more files I have to move; example: in the pub/
folder there are some skins I have to add, but (as an example) I
probably do not want to touch the /guiedit/ content... So I have to
open the /pub/ folder and pick by hand...

Really, I'm confused.
Many many files to move by hand... Carefully.
I'm just afraid that pm did not meant that, and I just undestand wrong.
