Hi Roger and the list:

Yes, ActivePython (thanks).  I did try to expand the production 1.5.5a zip 
file from the Linux machine "on top of" the working 1.5.5a Windows 
installation, with the PC having been restarted, and the production 
instance shows no sign of having been integrated, thus my thinking that 
files may have paths that need to be adjusted, both for the wiki and 
Apache, and maybe for Python.

And I don't see why I would need to upgrade to the newer version until I 
can get same version working on a new platform?

Ideas welcome.
