I'm also not an Apache expert but I tend to say "it's up to you". If you 
have access to the Apache configuration files then you can do it that 
way. But PmWiki can also be installed on shared webhosting packages 
where clients don't have access to the Apache configuration files.

Mhm. If you deny access to the uploads directory nobody can upload files 
to it and nobody can download files from it. It's like not supporting 
uploads. What you wanna do is to disallow some file extensions and to 
downgrade scripts (php) to text files.

AddType text/plain .php
