Not so. My problem was an Apache security feature I didn't know how it worked.
The other problem was that I used a configuration tool but edited configuration
files manually afterwards not fully understanding what the tool had done.
But finally Google came to the rescue :-) This was a "normal" software problem.
By chance appearing on Linux. Could also have happened on a Windoof Apache.

What you experienced was the standard way a Wiki works.
I didn't upload the data from the old Wiki to the new one yet.
You see, I also have a live beyond Oberon and sadly atm a lot of things on my agenda.
So you accessed a page which didn't exist. And what does a Wiki do in this case ?
It gives you the chance to create the page and fill it with contents using it's
markup language.
Concerning LNO or LinAOS you can be sure that this is something I won't forget in the

Cheers, Edgar
