You should be able to set your data_dir to whatever you want in the configuration.

I cannot tell from your description whether you're running a wiki "farm", or a single instance.

See "HelpOnConfiguration".

Hi all,

So I'm setting up a demo environment and Im including moinmoin. I've run
into some problems setting it up.

I'm currently running a nginx server listening on 80, and while I know
moinmoin also runs on nginx, Ive followed the simple setup to get it
working with apache2 and mod_wsgi.

I've configured most things correctly, the path to moin is
/usr/local/share/moin. However files like /data and /underlay are
actually in the moin/ directory as opposed to the moin/config/ which is
where and farmwiki/ are located. So I kept running into
this error.

"data_dir "/usr/local/share/moin/config/data" does not exist, or has
incorrect ownership or permissions."

As a workaround I simply created symlinks to /data and /underlay inside

Is this an acceptable workaround? How am I supposed to do this? What did
I do wrong?
