Hello all,

first of all - thx for all the fast and good advice. Well, what should
I say - it worked. There was a server running on port 80 with a
program I have to use so changing the port was the key.

This is what I did - perhaps it helps someone:


1. Installed PMwiki and /server as requested
2. Changed port to :81 (localhost:81)
3. Put pmwikiserv.bat in the Autostart, so it is started with laptop
4. Started using the wiki - thx again !
