Upgrading from 4.3 to 5.0

Post by niklaus.haldimann »

hi there

i'm about to upgrade from webinator 4.3 to 5.0 (both commercial). the existing 4.3 installation has about 50 profiles and i would like to keep them during the upgrade. i can't figure out from the documentation, if this is possible or not.

readme.txt says: "The administrative interface has provisions for importing walk options from your existing databases."

but the download page for the installer and license key says: "If you are updating an existing Webinator installation this installation will delete all existing walk profiles, but not the walk dataspaces. You will need to record your walk profile settings and reenter them after the update."

indeed, i can't find any "provisions for importing walk options" in a clean 5.0 installation. will i really have to manually create all profiles again after the upgrade?

thanks for clarification

thanks, that was helpful and the upgrade went very well. may i suggest that you add the instructions from the forum post linked above to the official manual? i guess i'm not the last one who's going to be confused about upgrades. ;)

cheers
