Just out of curiosity...would your installation of PmWiki happen
to be somewhere in the /var filesystem (e.g., /var/www/html/pmwiki)...?

If yes, how large is the disk filesystem it's on, and how much
free space does it have?

Also, is your installation of PmWiki on a network-mounted drive
of some sort (e.g., via NFS)?
