[pmwiki-users] shared storage via http? and upload via http

I guess the problem is that PHP cannot "stat" files with http:// urls:


The PageStore calls file_exists which then tries to stat the page which
fails. Probably replacing the file_exists in the PageStore by some fopen
(which is supported for http://) construction will give you an http://
enabled PageStore.
