I can't find it but I'm sure I read about this.
Is it true or not that if you have been using files for userprefs and
addressbook that if you give squirrelmail a database table to now use
that it will move all the data into the table?
If not - would this not be rather sensible?
I understand that this is DEFINTIELY the case for a hashed data_dir - if
you change the hashing level then new files are moved into the correct
It wouldn't be too hard to see if that particular user has any entries
in the database table, if not look for a file in the data_dir and if not
then load in the defaults. Same for both abook and prefs.
Perhaps deleting the old file or perhaps not - some might want the old
info preserved whilst they make sure the db system works ok.
In the event the above is not the case and is not going to be
implemented anytime soon in stable (I'm on the 1.4.4 branch) does any
helpful person out there have a script that will migrate the data into
the db? Hopefully one that will avoid overwriting, creating duplicates etc?
