The original ewiki database table structure was compatible with the
one used in PhpWiki+ version 1.2.x, however it turned out that the
PhpWiki+ project has yet not stopped completely and choosed to
implement a more relational table structure with version 1.3

This plugin is only meant for transition from PhpWiki+ v1.3.x to
ewiki, it should NOT be used to connect ewiki with PhpWiki+ forever.

Write access is disabled per default, but available. However it is
probably not fully compatible with the database abstraction and usage
of PhpWiki+, so it is likely to corrupt your database if you use it
for a longer period of time. This warning is mainly because the
'latestmajor', 'latestminor and 'minor_edit' rows in the PhpWiki+
database, because such stuff is not used by ewiki at all. ewiki also
tries to put some of the pages meta data into places where it could
eventually confuse PhpWiki+.
Write access is however done nearly as safe as within the ewiki
database access layer (INSERT statement to not overwrite existing

Again: this plugin is in no way meant to encourage you to keep your
old PhpWiki+ database!  ;>
Please see also "tools/ewiki_convertdb.php".

If you temporarily enable this plugin within the default/example
"config.php" or the "tools/ewiki_tools_config.php" you can also
utilize the very powerful 'ewikictl' cmdline utility to generate a
copy of your PhpWiki+ database in one of the backup formats suitable
for later use with ewiki.

You cannot modify the README.plugins file, but anyhow any ideas or suggestion should as usually get filed on BugReports, UserSuggestions or even better the README.plugins.Discussion.
