Do you see any message of error or warning that the page could not be
saved? When you submit the edit form with the "Save" button, does the
edit form reappear, or the form gets submitted but the page is not
If it is a permissions issue, you need to know what are the accepted
permissions for files and for directories on your server and make sure
that your wiki.d directory and all files in it have these permissions.
Typically your permissions for directories may be 755 or 705, and for
editable files 644 or 604, and this information may be in the
documentation of your hosting provider.
Another way to check the permissions is to let PmWiki create a directory
and a file. Rename "wiki.d" on the server to another name, say
"renamed-wiki.d", then PmWiki will create a new 'wiki.d' and will add
files in it. Visit the wiki in your browser and make a few edits, like
HomePage and WikiSandbox. Then you'll see the newly created files in the
new wiki.d directory and you can compare their permissions with the ones
of renamed-wiki.d. If this is a permissions issue, the permissions will
be different, so match them, remove the new "wiki.d" and rename back
"renamed-wiki.d" to "wiki.d". To see/change permissions with an FTP
browser, right-click on a file or files and select Permissions or
