Subject RE: Upgrade 1.0 to 1.1b2
Date Mon, 11 Aug 2003 14:52:53 GMT
Disclaimer: please, someone correct me if I misunderstand;

With the significant changes from 1.0 to 1.1, we did not set a priority
on compatibility with previous data files...that does not mean it won't
work.  It would help greatly if you could attempt firing up a copy of
your db, and letting us know what issues you encounter.  For the most
part, I don't believe the core has changed too much, so it may work out
of the box.  Make sure to check your indexes as well.

Let us know!

No changes to the api code.  That's Great!

What about the first question, can I copy the /db directory from version
1.0 to 1.1b2 or has the underlying database structure changed?  I
briefly tested this, and it seemed to work, but I thought that I would
ask those who know more about it than I do before I make a big mistake.
