Jean-Vincent Drean 1.1 61
Jean-Vincent Drean 4.1 62 {{warning}}Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add //xwiki.store.migration=1// so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.{{/warning}}
