Thanks for the commentary. No, I'm not editing the pmwiki.php source,
I'm editing /local/config.php, which seemed to be the appropriate local
file. I was going to install the Gemini skin to use, and haven't
uploaded that yet. I'll look through the docs per your suggestion.
I've been really impressed at how easy this is to configure. I just
uploaded the files to my Godaddy account, and it worked out of the box.
Very nice. As far as editing /local/config.php, I was going to configure
an editor to remotely edit /local/config.php, but I'm curious as to
creating any security holes when I do that. Any comments?
