Dear all

May be this is somewhere else described but I haven't found it
(unfortunately moinmoin is down at the moment) I like to tell it here.

I have had some problems but now I think all is right going:

1) Read carefully the migration description!!!!!

~   I have had some trouble with some of the attachment dirs they were
~   renamed to a unique name:
~   FISH_5fTechnik,
~   FISH_20Technik,
~   FISH_5f20Technik

~   Two of them were empty so I decided to remove them, otherwise I
~   couldn't run the migration scripts.

2) Internal Server Error 500

~   Solution: moin_config.py is now wikiconfig.py named

~   best is to create first a simple mywiki instance as decribed and to
~   look what is different to your "old" wikis

~   Just renaming the file is not the best method, because some of the
~   variables  names or syntax has changed

~   Probably it needs readright for the world.

3) underlay directory or settings variable "data_underlay_dir"

~   In new wikis attachment goes to the "data_underlay_dir" directory.
~   If you have old attachments set this variable to the "data_dir"
~   variable.
~   If you have used before a separate attachment dir you could think
~   about using now the underlay_dir method. The old settings do work but
~   are very dangerous.
~   attachments = {
~      'dir': '/usr/share/moin/htdocs/blabla',
~      'url': '/wiki/blabla',
~    }
