Normally this works.  :-)

If you mean that it's no longer accepting passwords, it's possible
that the new server doesn't support the same encryption formats that
the old server was using.  Could you send me an example page file
(from your wiki.d/ directory) where the password isn't being accepted,
and the output of running your new server with ?action=crypt ?  I can
tell you if that's what is happening, and we can come up with a way to
clean up the password situation if so.
