Hello

Sorry if this question was already answered somewhere. I tried to find it on all documentation/Faq without success, or answer was not so clear

My Hmailserver 4.X is running on a machine with external Mysql 4.X Database (not internal mysql engine).

If I upgrade to 5.0, will this be ok ? nothing to do to keep existing my existing Mysql DB & tables ?

I read no issue for internal mysql migration, mssql, etc... but nothing for external mysql engine

Thank you

Thomas

I don't understand why people think that the installation program would just change database or anything like that. :)

No need to, I wrote that text after you made your post.

I just don't understand why everyone asks for it. It's not like it's standard procedure for an upgrade tool to ditch all your old data. Then it wouldn't really be an upgrade. :)
