   45 # Upgrading from versions 1.3 and later
   46 
   47 All past versions starting from 1.3 can be upgraded directly to the current
   48 version without having to use any intermediate versions.
   49 
   50  1. Follow the normal install procedure, `make install` step will upgrade the
   51     configuration file if it exists in the usual location. All user settings
   52     will be kept. However, unidentified content, such as unknown keywords
   53     and additional comments, will get cleaned away.
   54 
   55  2. Review the updated configuration file. Refer to comments in the file and
   56     the `vnstat.conf` man page for documentation regarding each setting.
   57 
   58  3. After the configuration file has been updated, restart the daemon
   59     (`vnstatd`) or configure it to use if not previously done already. Note
   60     that using a cron entry for updates (something like `vnstat -u`) is no
   61     longer supported and such commands should be removed if still existing.
   62 
   63  4. Upgrades from 1.x to 2.x will result in data being imported from the
   64     legacy databases of each interface during the first start of the new
   65     daemon (`vnstatd`) binary. The `vnstat` and `vnstati` commands will not
   66     be able to access any data before this part of the upgrade has been
   67     completed. The legacy databases will be left untouched by the import.
