Description: Suggested addition to the Installation page.

I installed php twice (beta48 and 6) and experienced small problems with the permissions.

This last time it worked only after performing:

tar xvpzf pmwiki-latest.tgz (note the p)

Another minor modification to the text. Please add: Be patient, it may take time. at the end of to point 5. (it took a few minutes for me)

Hello, the -p switch (--preserve-permissions) is usually not needed, and in some cases it may cause problems. Best is (generally) to extract the files with the default permissions of the server, and let PmWiki fix them as needed. About the point 5, as the page has somewhat changed in the last 4 years, but please improve the page, or leave a message in its talk page. --Petko July 14, 2009, at 07:02 PM
