Going from 1.5.5 on Linux to 1.5.5 on Windows should work OK.  
  1. Compare the Linux httpd.conf against the Windows version for
differences (just the few moin related statements).
  2. Compare the wikiconfig.py on the two versions, especially the
statements under the section marked critical setup.
  3. You need to offer more clues as to what is failing, exactly.

I regularly use Unison to sync my test copy on Windows up with the
production copy on Fedora Core 6.
