It could be indeed a problem with access rights: both the server process and  
the PHP interpreter need read permissions on the pmwiki files, and  
read/write/scan (sometimes labeled execute) permissions on the directories  
wiki.d and uploads. OTOH, if the skin works, it could be other thing.

It could also be a PHP compatibility issue: recent PHP 5 versions behave  
differently than older ones and we had to adapt PmWiki to work with these.  
Upgrading in this case should help. Read the page Upgrades before:
