Just to confirm: If the old CVSNT is older than about 2.0.1 or so then uninstall-install. After this all updates are done by simply executing the installer for the full version and it will update if it finds an older version already installed. The repository data are not touched by this process so they remain intact. The location of the repository is stored in the Registry and the new server will find it by itself, normally no need to "point to it". There are a number of new features added that may need to be taken care of via the Control panel applet or via modification of the CVSROOT/config file, for example usage of the lockserver etc. But it should start running out of the box. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Erik Weber [mailto:erikweber at mindspring.com] Sent: den 1 juli 2004 15:27 To: Bo Berglund; cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Unix client problems Thanks a lot! One more question if you please: I assume the upgrade means to uninstall the old and then fresh install the new. Any special steps to be taken to keep the original repository contents intact? Or is it simply a matter of telling the new cvsnt where the old repository is after installing?
