Subject RE: Update to 1.5.3 from 1.5.1
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2008 17:52:31 GMT
When I started out I was trying to use the archive install because I had
1.5.1 installed already and running the windows installer for 1.5.3 over
the top of that install didn't work at all (noclassdef issues).

So, I have since cleaned up all of my old installs and now I have the
1.5.3 Windows install running.  It is still not picking up my custom
schema and I don't see any errors in the apacheds-rolling.log for my
instance or in the wrapper.log.  I am attaching my 1.5.3 config file in
case there is something in there I need to change to make it work.

It should have stayed the same. What is your OS and what kind of
installer did you choose to install ?

Maybe you've chosen the zip or tar.gz archive. These "installers" do not
share the same directory structure and don't allow to run multiple
instance but only one.

I suggest that you use Apache Directory Studio and extract all your data
in your partitions as LDIF. Then you can import them easily in 1.5.3.

Finally, I have a custom schema LDIF that I had in

As I said, the directory structure as not changed so you should be able
to drop your custom schema in your instance ldif directory, unless
you've used the zip or tar.gz archives.
If yes, I suggest that you download the same installer you installed
1.5.1 with.
