Set this in config.php:

$PagePathFmt = array('{$Group}.$1','$1.{$DefaultName}','$1.$1');

Alternatively, you could change the default URL of group home pages,
which doesn't have to exactly match what the wiki uses internally. I
use something like the following:

if (strpbrk($pagename,'./') === FALSE) $EnableFixedUrlRedirect = 0;
$FmtPV['$PageUrl'] = 'PUE(($pn=="Main.HomePage")
	? "$ScriptUrl/"
	: (($name==$group)
		? "$ScriptUrl/$group"
		: "$ScriptUrl/$group/$name" ))';

This is at least mentioned in the documentation at
