Thx for the your explain of the writing process of pmwiki. It is usefull 
for my (poor) understanding.

Maybe the error occured at this moment ? But then, the original page 
must stay beside the new one (empty). Sometimes, ther was no 
"PageName,New", but just "PageName" only, and empty.

Maybe this is not the same problem as the sessions problem.

Yes. I should mistake something...

Of course ! That what I think. But a change or an error on the server 
environment, not in my pmwiki install whitch worked before. For example, 
I use in intranets others php utils, like File Thingie 
(http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/) or eXtplorer 
(http://extplorer.sourceforge.net/). And they do not run ; they use 
authentification, so, I thinks, sessions. Impossible to do user/pass

Excuse me. I read. I think I understand : I change all "php5" by 
"php5-2" in dirs where a *.php exists (pmwiki, cookbook, scripts...) and 
in the www root dir. But that do not correct the error.
Also, a phpinfo execute in the root dir says "PHP Version 5.2.9-1.illimite".

Yes. I'll do that. But my cnx is a bad 3G, and every manipulation is 
difficult, more difficult when there is clouds... :-)

many many thanks for your help !
