A strange phenomenon: Opening the public folder /pmwiki sometimes seemed to execute /pmwiki/pmwiki.php and sometimes /pmwiki_old/pmwiki.php. I could make changes in the wiki, and sometimes they went into /pmwiki/wiki.d and other times to /pmwiki_old/wiki.d. I could switch between these - using the same browser url - by switching an external proxy on (new version) and off (old version). Renaming the pmwiki_old folder didn't change anything, and setting its permissions to 000 gave me a 403 error on the pmwiki (!) folder.

Only completely removing the pmwiki_old folder solved the problem.

Thanks for advising.
