[pmwiki-users] Standalone Problems

As for standalone on WinXP on my notebook it runs fine.
The folder "server" is in the same root folder as other folders like 
"wiki.d", "local" ...
In that root folder I have the file "index.php" with only 1 line without 
CRLF which is
<?php include('pmwiki.php');
On my desktop I have a shortcut to ...\server\pmwikiserv.bat which is in 
the "server" folder with an option run minimized.
After starting that bat file the URL for my browser is
which runs without any problem.

As for Abyss the PmWiki folders should be placed in "htdocs" for example 
You can run it using http://localhost/pmwiki/pmwiki.php or better using 
index.php mentioned above (and set in Abyss configuration) use URL 

Hope it helps,
