Upgrading to 1.7 from 188.8.131.52
I haven't found any specific documentation about upgrading from 1.6.5.x to 1.7, so I installed 1.7 on top of my 184.108.40.206 installation.
The installation program prompted me, telling me that it would perform 4 steps for the major upgrade. 1)Copy my current membase files to a temp directory 2) uninstall Membase 220.127.116.11 3) Install 1.7 4) Copy back my previous membase files.
Install went smooth with the exception that at one point it said that it could not read a specific db file, clicking ok, the install continued without issues. When finished, it launched the Web Console, welcome page, next, configure server.
I haven't gone any further because at this point it appear that I'm being asked to re-configure a brand new instance of Membase. Oh my, what has happened to my previous instance? Can I not tell it to just use the previous membase(s) and memcache(s) somehow? Do I have to start again from scratch?
This is on my dev computer, but I need to perform this upgrade on our production servers soon and obviously cannot lose the data we're already using.
Please advise. Thank you.
