Right. The moin command needed for migration (and other commandline
stuff) should get installed into your path. Or, if you do not install
via setup.py, you can just use MoinMoin/script/moin.py.

moin.cgi is expected to output html (to some web server invoking it),
but is not expected to be used on the commandline (except for testing
whether it outputs html :).

What does it mean "pages displayed just fine" and then "all broken"?
Looks like there is some information missing: what happened in between?
What exactly means "all broken"?

Did you maybe do the conversion as root and not change the
user/group/mode afterwards back to correct values?

No, it is one more (because the converter creates a new revision with
the conversion results).

Which error?

That's not an error.
