MoinMoin CGI Diagnosis

I get the same results running moin.cgi from the command line as
moin.py. Obviously a python issue.

Any help appreciated. Also any pointers to support lists or pages.

No subdirectory 'text' inside 'data' was found.

thanks, Mike.

But is there a larger significance? The moinmoin installation creates a
'data' directory containing subdirs plugin, text and user, as well as
the intermap.txt file.

text is set to everyone with full control. in fact the path from root
to text grants everyone access with full control.

The text directory itself contains language-specific help files for
moinmoin. all are full control to everyone.
