[Moin-user] possible to move/upgrade moin data?

I have an old Ubuntu 7.04 server running MoinMoin 1.8.1 (I think). This
wiki is in a private network used only for internal business purposes,
and I am 100% happy with the features etc, so I don't really need to

However, I am virtualising the host that moinmoin is on. Instead of
setting up moinmoin manually (as I did on the existing server), I want
to use the version that comes prepackaged with Ubuntu 10.04 - namely

Can I just install the distro version, then copy the data from where it
is on the exiting server (/usr/local/moin/share/moin/data) to the
equivalent directory on the new server?

If not, what's the best way to do this? "Best" = lose least data, do
least work :-)

I have Googled some likely terms, but the answer seems to be to upgrade
the existing server, then move the whole installation across. That seems
like a lot of work, but I'll do it if I have to.

Thanks for any guidance.

Regards, K.
