(15:19:42) sjn: CDot: After installing CGI::Session, things seemed to look fine. The only thing that went wrong, was the file permissions after copying the pub/ and data/ directories plus lib/LocalSite.cfg.
No specifics yet.
turns out i'd commented out the chmod 0777 code
5. Set the permissions appropriately for the new TWiki.
I have given pub and data global read and write access, so your
new TWiki will work, but you SHOULD configure tighter security.

lib/TWiki/Upgrade/UpdateTopics.pm lib/TWiki/Upgrade/UpgradeToDakar.pm -m "Item518: brought back the chmod -R 0777 code, and made step 5 advice a little stronger. Also removed un-necessary parameters from Upgrade methods, and changed the command line to insist that the user gives the location of the Cairo setlib.cfg (as we never loaded the Cairo TWiki.cfg to allow us to find it)"
