First look and I can tell that PmWiki relies heavily on the function eval(), 
which is unavailable in hiphop.

For this to work you probably need a VPS or dedicated hosting -- most shared 
hosting providers won't let you compile C++ programs and/or run binary 
programs. (Again, PmWiki will probably not compile because of eval().)
