Dear Roger, hi guys,
that portion of information solved our problem perfect in=20
an non-time-consuming manner! Thanks a whole lot!
And cleared the foggy aera of serveral wikiconfig.py's we
had in different directories. Now we have only two with
exactly the same content ;=3D).
Greeting and a very nice weekend!

If I understand the problem correctly, I think on your previous
installation of 1.5.3 you ran setup.py something like this:
python setup.py --quiet install --record=3Dinstall.log
and that installed Moin in /python24/Lib/site-packages/MoinMoin/ and=20
/python24/share/Moin/. This is the normal place for the Moin files.=20
It is recommended to have the wiki "instance" located elsewhere outside
the python24 directory, or even on another drive.
On your upgrade to 1.5.4 you are trying to do:
python setup.py --quiet install --prefix=3D"e:\moin"
where using the --prefix changes the location of the Moin software --
and you probably don't want to do that.
To upgrade from 1.5.3 to 1.5.4, you probably only need to run the first
command form above and you are done. However, if you copied the
underlay directory from /python24/share/moin/ to the e: drive, you may
want to recopy that to catch any documentation updates in the wiki
underlay pages. Also it is a good practice to recopy wikiconfig.py and
reapply any customizations for your local installation settings. For
the 1.5.3 to 1.5.4 upgrade in particular, copying the underlay
directory and wikiconfig.py is probably not necessary.
Also, you will want to delete the 1.5.4 Moin files that were
incorrectly installed on the e: drive. Be careful, I may have
misunderstood your situation.
