You should not install 2.2.x versions over an 1.x version. There is a page 


whith instructions: normally you first install 2.0.0 (not 2.2) then add some 
lines in config.php, then if it works, you can add one more line to convert 
the existing pages to the newer format.

Then you install 2.1.0, then if it works, you install the latest 2.1.x stable, 
if it works, you install 2.2.0, if it works, a newer version.

To sum up, I recommend installing at least :
- the first stable release of a major version 2.x.0
- the last  stable release of a major version 2.x.99 (the highest number)
then the next major release 2.(x+1).0, and so on. And everytime, test and 
observe if everything works, and read the release notes to learn if something 
has changed and needs fixing.

Archives of all older releases can be downloaded here:

  http://www.pmwiki.org/pub/pmwiki/                    2.2.x versions
  http://www.pmwiki.org/pub/pmwiki/older-releases/     even older versions

Normally, if something doesn't work, you should find information about 
important changes in the release notes. As you may not notice that something 
stopped working, it is highly recommended to read the release notes for all 
releases between your last working version and the one you're installing.
