Chances are that your webserver isn't processing .htaccess
files (which would normally prevent browsers from accessing
files in local/ ).  This isn't generally a problem, as there's
normally not anything risky in local/config.php anyway.

It's also possible to run PmWiki without any of the script
files being placed in a web-accessible location -- let me know
if you're interested in something like that.
