[pmwiki-users] Permission problem

I recently upgraded my server to a newer version. For the sake of getting
the server up and running again most quickly, I simply copied the old
pmwiki directory tree to /var/www

I find now that the only way I can make the file editable is to chmod every
file in wiki.d to www-data - otherwise I get .flock issues. Changing the
owner to nobody did not help here.

1. Is this normal behavior?

2. If I want to change it, what is the best way? Should I install pmwiki
from scratch in /var/www or a user's home directory, then copy the content
of wiki.d? How about images?

I prefer not to have directories with world write privileges.
