The PmWiki cookbook has a number of recipes to help you run a
PmWiki-as-a-CMS website to suit your particular needs
(http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/CMS). I've used this approach to
build large number of websites over the years with great results.
As a starting point, in config.php you can change the default group and
page and remove any references to Group/Group pages:
$DefaultGroup = 'Home';
$DefaultName = 'Index';
$PagePathFmt = array('$Group.$1', '$1.$DefaultName');
I also used $SearchPatterns to remove wiki-related groups from default
pages lists (including search results or using a pagelist as a simple
site map), so the only pages that display are website-related and not
wiki-related (which you can override for site admin by adding "list=all"
to the pagelist command):
$SearchPatterns['default'] = '!^Site\\.!';
$SearchPatterns['default'] = '!^SiteAdmin\\.!';
$SearchPatterns['default'] = '!^PmWiki\\.!';
