I seem to recall that some parts of PHP are unable to work with
the FastCGI version of PHP. I don't recall exactly what the problem
So, I suspect that your wiki stopped working when PHP was upgraded/
replaced on the server.

We might need to try some additional diagnostics to figure out
where things are getting "hung". I notice that ?action=diag and
?action=phpinfo seem to work, but other "simple" actions
such as ?action=crypt are failing. So, there must be something
that FastCGI or your version of PHP doesn't like in PmWiki's action
dispatch handler, although I can't really imagine what that
On your fresh install, you might try inserting the line
print("Got here!\n"); exit();
at various places between lines 325 and 357, to see which part of
the code is causing the failure. Then we can track it down more
