Hmmmm. The newer MoinMoin Wiki has some features I could probably use (acl lists and wikifarms). Need to get some time to grock the new stuff.

How to recover lost MoinMoin password?
In case the site goes away, here is the skinny:
edit the users info in /var/lib/wikilocation/data/user and replace the sha1 hash with one you know!

Broken MoinMoin wiki post upgrade of your Python interpreter?
Caches and bytecode! - change examples below to fit your install paths first!
Clear out the cache files :
rm -rf ./share/moin/[yourwikiinstance]/data/pages/*/cache/
rm -rf ./share/moin/[yourwikiinstance]/underlay/pages/*/cache/

And your pyc (bytecode from last Python interpreter.):
python -c "import compileall; compileall.compile_dir('./share/moin')"

Did your Apache install get upgraded to 2.4?
Do you want to see your wiki again?
Try this - add to your apache config.
<Directory "/home/[yourwikiinstance]/share/moin">
    Options All
    AllowOverride All
    Require all granted
    Allow from all

Oh, and don't forget your webroot:
<Directory /home/[yourwikihome]/public_html>
Options -Indexes +IncludesNOEXEC +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch +ExecCGI
allow from all
AllowOverride All
