Okay, so my assumption is correct. See below for the htaccess files.

I shouldn't have used cPanel in the first place. It seemed so easy, just 
point and click, but I strongly suspect it messed up my custom .htaccess 
files. I can decipher an htaccess file with the book beside me, if it 
has an index, but don't trust myself beyond that.

A good test page is:

I also rechecked the CHMOD. Everything from /pmwiki on down allows read 
access to all three levels (mostly 755). www is 750. I don't remember 
playing with chmod recently. So many ways to control permission. Very 
frustrating to troubleshoot until you learn them all.

Many thanks!

THE HTACCESS FILES, starting from the lowest directory. I'd expect the 
lowest to be the problem, since things that use the higher directories 
are working just fine.


No htaccess file in this directory.

Also no htaccess file.

Options All

(I don't remember changing that one at all.)

www (aka public_html)
# Options AllOptions All
(Okay, even I know that one is messed up, but no clue what it should be, 
and if it were the problem, I'd expect more problems.)

No htaccess file.

Again, many thanks!
