[pmwiki-users] Upload setup produces download pmwiki.php dialog box

I'm a new, happy user of PmWiki (thank you!) with a problem setting up uploads correctly.

Problem Definition
When I set up an "Attach:file.ext" to upload a file and go through the process of identifying the file to be uploaded and giving it a name, pushing the "upload" button produces a dialog box wanting to download pmwiki.php.
*  If I let it download the file and open it, the file is empty.
* I cannot get it to upload my test file

What I've tried
- Turned  $EnableUpload off and on - doesn't do anything.
- Initially used   $UploadPrefixFmt = '/$Group/$Name' instead of    $HandleAuth['upload'] = 'edit';  - didn't do any better

Relevant Information

Initial Server information when turned on uploading.
It gave me a path something like  "xxxx/yyyy/httpdocs/pmwiki/uploads/uploads/".  I talked to the Plesk administrator and he assures me that "/httpdocs/...."  is starting from "my" root so I don't quite understand.

Unfortunately I didn't save that path information and cannot figure out how to retrieve it.  I'd hoped that turning $EnableUpload of and on again might display it, but it didn't.  I suspect this of being the problem, but don't know what to do.

 $EnableUpload = 1;                       
 $HandleAuth['upload'] = 'edit';
 $UploadDir = "/httpdocs/pmwiki/uploads/";
 $UploadUrlFmt = "http://mitchell.lamp.drexel.edu/pmwiki/uploads/";
 $UploadMaxSize = 1000000; # limit upload file size to 1 megabyte
 $ScriptUrl = 'http://mitchell.lamp.drexel.edu/pmwiki/pmwiki.php';
 $PubDirUrl = 'http://mitchell.lamp.drexel.edu/pmwiki/pub';

My uploads directory and subdirectories have permissions set to 777

PHP Info v5.0.4 - I don't understand it - just copied from the phpinfo page

Path to upload directory is as in $UploadDir
