PmWiki didn't change in this regard, so it's B.
Re. security, you should ask your host what changes it has done to its web
server setup, because the web server (PHP) could write to 0755 directories
and now it can't. From a paranoid perspective, it is a security risk, but
if their setup is right, having a 0777 wiki.d might be ok.

P.S. Was it really 0755 before? Or 2755?
