Can PmWiki be installed using Composer?
PmWiki does not have dependencies from other PHP libraries or projects, there is no need for a dependency manager to install or maintain it. No automatic updates are officially supported, administrators are advised to read Upgrades and Release Notes before upgrading. --Petko September 22, 2018, at 03:50 AM

To make pmwiki.php the default page for the pmwiki/ resource, it is not necessary (well, sometimes, see below) to rename pmwiki.php or add a malformed index.php. Instead, add a file named .htaccess with the content:
