hi all,

i'm trying to install MoinMoin on a linux server running Apache. i
followed the installation instructions and verified that the given
script 'explore.py' (which i renamed to 'explore.cgi') can run from my
webserver's cgi-bin directory. i modified the configuration files,
following the help document as best as i could.

when i run moin.cgi (which i placed in DOCUMENT_ROOT/cgi-bin) from the
command line, using "python moin.cgi", it seems to work perfectly --
it outputs the following:

2009-08-30 14:51:15,408 WARNING MoinMoin.log:139 using logging
configuration read from built-in fallback in MoinMoin.log module!
2009-08-30 14:51:15,525 INFO MoinMoin.config.multiconfig:125 using
wiki config: /home/website/config/wikiconfig.pyc
Status: 200 OK
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Vary: Cookie,User-Agent,Accept-Language

...followed by the HTML of the page that's supposed to be displayed.

however, when i try to run this from my webserver, i.e.
myserver.com/cgi-bin/moin.cgi, i simply get a blank page. when i view
the HTML source of the page from the browser, it is blank. i *don't*
get the 500 internal server error, but no output at all.

any ideas what could be causing this? if i run
myserver.com/cgi-bin/explore.cgi, it works well, so i think the
problem is not in executing cgi scripts in general.

thanks very much for your help.
