I have some answers, the rest can probably be answered on the=20
phpwiki-talk mailing list by the other members, so I am forwarding a=20
copy there too to see whether the rest of the team has any comments to=20=
Glad to hear you like PhpWiki! :) Actually I am just one of the project=20=
contributors, PhpWiki is not all my doing.
BTW, which operating system do you have?
PhpWiki requires a web browser and web server (like Apache) with a PHP=20=
interpreter module, so technically it cannot really be "standalone".=20
However, if you install it onto your personal computer probably no one=20=
will notice, or you can set up a firewall to block port 80. (I am=20
running this way with Mac OS X and Apache, for my private note-taking).
The required PEAR files are now included with PhpWiki. (It also comes=20
with ADODB, but pear is still the default I think).
Tar vs. Zip:
I'm not sure what you mean, would you elaborate a little more? Which=20
tar file are you referring to?
There is no automatic setup of the database yet. Schemas are already=20
prepared and can be found in phpwiki/schemas, see=20
phpwiki/doc/INSTALL.mysql for instructions to create the database and=20
the tables from a shell. phpMyadmin should be fine too, but as I never=20=
used that I imagine one would have to read the=20
phpwiki/schemas/mysql.sql and input it manually.
It really depends on how your server is set up. If you have ssh or=20
telnet access to the server you can always edit index.php once it is on=20=
the server. I think it best to configure as many options as you can=20
before you upload it, PhpWiki won't work at all without at least the=20
database configuration in place.

P.S. Wenn Du das Wiki letztendlich konfiguriert haben und es=20
funktioniert, wir w=E4ren uns freuen da zu erfahren :) Vorschlagswesen=20=
f=FCr die Deutsche =DCbersetzung w=E4ren auch immer gesch=E4tzt.
P.P.S. Eigentlich ist das Wetter hier sonnig geworden, Heute ist es 15C=20=
Grad in Toronto, jipii!
