Correct me if I'm wrong here: You've MOVED index.php somewhere outside 
of the Wordpress directory?

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve, but I don't think you are 
using the 'home' & 'siteurl' options in the same way that most people 
use them. 'siteurl' is supposed to point to your wordpress directory 
(that should contain index.php along with all the other WP files). 
'home' can point to another directory, for those people who do not use 
index.php as their home page.

The plugin needs to be able to find its files. It looks in 
<siteurl>/wp-content/plugins/eventcalendar3/. That works OK on your 

The plugin also needs to be able to find index.php in the same place. 
You've moved it, so the plugin doesn't work. I suggest you put it back, 
then everything will be fine.

I don't always use the permalink structure for two reasons:

1. Some of the links do not have a permalink. E.g. the active XML URL 
is index.php?ec3_xml=2005_10

2. Some of the links are generated by JavaScript. I don't consider it 
desirable to port all the permalink generating code to JS, since it 
will be impossible to maintain.

Rather than moving index.php, why don't you add a line to your 
.htaccess to rewrite / as /wp/index.php? That's the normal way of doing
