Hello. The default PmWiki installation doesn't accept *.tar archives, but you 
can use either *.tgz or *.tar.gz format. (Normally, you can just do in a 
terminal `gzip yourfile.tar` to compact it.)

However, some users may be unable to open such archives without installing 
additional software. It may be better to use the *.zip format which is 
supported almost everywhere.
