    v2 v6  
    1 {{{ 
    2 There is a script (schema_validate.php) which handles 
    3 safely migrating data and database schema of a live 
    4 installation when upgrading to a new version of 
    5 wifidog.  This is an absolute requirement for 
    6 maintaining the stability of support for multiple 
    7 databases on an ongoing basis.  Otherwise people will 
    8 regularly break something.  This should be done with a 
    9 different database name so it doesn't require a 
    10 separate install of the database software.  Having the 
    11 requirement of having all the suported database engines 
    12 will be costly enough as it is.
