Experienced trouble is probably unrelated to PmWiki ;
You have to upload everything (config file not needed at the very
beginning) in the working place (probably home/public_html/pmwiki) ;
after that you should be able to access your folder and run pmwiki at
Maybe, if possible, do a screenshot of your site tree as showed in
filezilla (folders expended + access rights visible) and share the
link of the picture (imgur.com for example) ; it might help us.
Using filezilla, click right on your pmwiki folder and
check/alter/chmod access rights
