Hello all.

I tried to export my pwmiki site to static html with the wget command
from the cookbook: (this is a slackware linux 13.1)

wget -r -k -np -p -l 0  http://localhost/E/pmwiki  --html-extension --post-data=authid={MY_USERNAME}&authpw={MY_PASSWD} 2> wget.log

Did that with and without POST request.
Here is the failure log:

I hope the translation is correct and readable.

Is this a wget problem with localhost?

There is a comment in the cookbook:

   18-Mar-2007 Olivier Bilodeau - I'm using CleanUrls (the ones that
wraps around index.php) and this cookbook didn't work. After a little
bit of research, I've found a workaround. You just need to create a
local index.php directory where your pmwiki wraps around index.php. No
more wget errors.

   Excuse me - I can't follow, obviously because I'm new to php.  I am
to create a directory named "index.php" ? What is meant by "where your
pmwiki wraps around index.php" i.e. what am I to do?

Cheers and thanks in advance,
