Migration from v1 to v2

Before migrating to v2:

  • If you want to keep your logs, you have to rename the file /data/area-51.txt into /data/logs.txt.
    Otherwise, nothing to do.

After migrating to v2:

  • You can delete the obsolete files /boxoffice.rss and /watchlist.rss.
    You can also add a redirection on your webserver for the previous deleted files to the movies.rss file.
  • You can delete the obsolete folder /cache.
