Yes it is a good idea not to hack/change pmwiki.php or its associated
script files in the scripts/ direcory, so you will not loose changes
made when you are updating. Best to keep changes in the local/
directory (which will not get overwritten when updating), and use
local/config.php for your customisations. You can copy the
sample-config.php from docs/ into local/ and edit this file.

I don't know what you mean by "start a new main page", but if you wish
to have a different default page loaded when a visitor comes to your
site, you can set a variable in local/config.php:
  $DefaultPage = 'GroupName.PageName';

See this page for information about some basic variables:

Or perhaps you don't know how to create new pages? See

Hope this helps!
