Is there a reason you can't modify the config folder permissions so that its writable?
If you can update text files in your data folder there "shouldn't" be any reason why you can't allow dokuwiki to modify its own config files.

I am not sure I understand you correctly, but I realize I was not very clear myself. When I wrote:

I meant "configuration files other than local.php". For this file, it works perfectly.

I don't understand how changing directory permission (ftp chmod) would allow me to edit the conf/* files through the wiki. Could you further explain your simpler solution?

TIA

Sincerely,
