67 1.1 Common Migration notes
68
69 #warning("If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=all</tt> to your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...</tt>.")
70
71 You may also want to import the [default wiki XAR>Main.Download] in order to benefit from improvements listed above. Make sure you read the [XWiki upgrade guide>platform:AdminGuide.Installation#HUpgradinganXWikiInstallation] before importing the new XAR since it can cause an overwrite of changes you made to some pages.
72
73 #warning("Always make sure you compare your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add <tt>xwiki.store.migration=1</tt> so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.")
