Thanks Neil. One last question.
In the folders of my wiki farm, will I have to implement same /local/ folder
manually, and in it to have the congig.php, or where else is the default
location of the config file?
Would you have a folder structure example of what each individual wiki in
the farm should contain? Or is just the wiki.d folder there?

In general terms, the farmconfig file loads first and sets the
parameters for all of the wikis in the farm. Each individual wiki's
config.php loads second and can override items in farmconfig.php. In the
special case of your "home wiki" (the one that contains both files) they
are still loaded in the same order and work like any other wiki in the farm.
Polite suggestion: when replying to pmwiki-users posts be sure to
"reply-all", otherwise only the original sender gets your reply. I am
sure there are lots of lurkers who would like to see the answers - if
only to be able to correct me when I give the wrong answer. ;-)
