I would like to upgrade one of my servers from Groupware Webmail Edition
1.2.x to the new 4.0 version and I have a few questions.
First, according to the UPGRADE file I should follow the instructions in
the INSTALL file to install the most recent Horde Groupware Webmail
Edition version using the PEAR installer. I have successfully installed
the software on my server using the PEAR installer and I then ran
"webmail-install". My questions are as follows:
1) How do I preserve the settings contained in the various
config/conf.php files for all of the existing 1.2.x applications? That
is, should I copy my old conf.php files over to the target installation
directory prior to or after doing the PEAR installation or what?
2) The "webmail-install" script sets up parameters that were already
specified in the existing 1.2.x installation and it also tries to build
a new database, however, since I am upgrading from 1.2.x, the database
already exists from the current installation. Is there a
"webmail-upgrade" script or some other way to upgrade that uses the
existing paramaters specified in "webmail-install" and does not try to
build a new database?
3) How do I specify the administrator user names prior to first time
Many thanks in advance!
