Hello. It should be easier to get the site if it is at least temporarily 
without a "read" password. Otherwise you should add an option to the command 
line to store and re-use cookies (in a single disk file) :

 wget --load-cookies=./cookie.txt --save-cookies=./cookie.txt [...]

Some servers are configured to block "robots" like wget from downloading 
pages. If that is the case for yours, you can force a different user agent:

 wget --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0" [other options...]

"index.php" is not a directory, just a text file containing this single line:

  <?php include_once("pmwiki.php");
