Importing from MoinMoin


I am importing our wiki from MoinMoin (1.2.3) to Confluence 4.0.3. I am encountering serveral error while importing.

1) UWC imported some portion of files but the pages have just the edit information and no content. (My guess is the MoinMoin pages directory is not in right format may be due to the older version of our MoinMoin wiki).

2) The import stops after going through some pages with the following error:

2012-01-19 16:45:05,532 ERROR [Thread-5] - Potential namespace collision detected for pages: \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited, \Last-edited

Does anyone has any suggestions about it?

The MoinMoin UWC convertor was contributed by a past user (wiki-migrator) and so known issues, compatibility, and any level of guarantees are limited/unknown.

However, the UWC developer - who has done dozens of Confluence migrations, is on the AppFusions team - and we are working to evolve the tool and program in general. Concentrated efforts to this end have just begun, coincidentally. Evolutions to be seen in coming months.

Please contact AppFusions at about getting technical support on your imminent migration, through extending the UWC specific to your content needs.

Also see this checklist as a quick inventory of all the content elements and migration aspects you should be considering in the process of a migration, for best success.
