I think that Dave was talking about something more advanced, while you
asked for something simpler. It is not recommended to rename the
pmwiki.php file, because PmWiki strives for simple upgrades: when
upgrading to a new version, you just extract the pmwiki archive
overwriting the current installation and everything continues to work.

If you don't want to have pmwiki.php at the end of URLs, you should use
an index.php file with a single line of code:
      <?php include('pmwiki.php'); 

Actually, this is mentioned in the doc/INSTALL.txt file of the pmwiki
archive you have downloaded.
