I successfully used this extension ...

Thanks for the help regarding my previous question
about transferring a
wiki to another machine. Looking at it, we really only need to transfer
quite a small subset of pages to another wiki (for private editing,
before putting them back on the main wiki) so the effort of doing a full
transfer might not be worthwhile. (In particular, we don't have
unrestricted access to the machine being transferred to, so some of the
steps involved in doing a full transfer might be difficult or
impossible). We can do the text as we work just by copying and pasting,
the real question is how to transfer the images.
From looking at the images directory on our site, it appears that
images are maintained in a directory structure that approximates a
b-tree of some sort, presumably to mitigate possible problems with
extremely large numbers of images. We haven't reached that point yet, so
is there any reason not to simply copy the directory, move all images to
the top-level in the copy, move the copy over the the new server, and
then use something like importImages.php to do the work?
