Subject migrating to Apache Directory Server 1.5.5 (was: Re: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Directory Server 1.5.5 released)
Date Sun, 30 Aug 2009 13:49:23 GMT

hi Brian,

thanks for choosing ADS :)

upgrading is a good thing but the journal feature is in a experimental state at the moment
and I think it remains so till the version 2.0 comes out

sadly no, however I suggest that you to do it in two steps

1. Tweaking new server.xml to fit to your existing setup (feel free to talk to us if you have
any q/issues)

2. Take a LDIF export of the existing data and import into the new server

As I said above, feel free to talk to us here on ML or on #apache-directory on
related to any questions/issues you face while modifying 1.5.5 server.xml to fit your existing
server setup
