I was hoping to do the very same today. Any technical suggestions for this all?

I suppose the alternative is to run up a new installation of XOT in a separate location/database and then move the user content over - how possible/easy is this?

Guidance gratefully received.

Subject: [Xerte] Xerte Upgrade

Dear all,

We are currently seeking to upgrade from an older version of Xerte (Online Toolkits) hosted on IIS to the latest version. We wish to maintain the existing database in order to preserve our existing content. Which config files would need to be modified after installing a fresh version of Xerte in order to hook it up to our existing database? I presume that once done, Xerte will pick up our LDAP settings from the database but would any additional configuration be required in order to re-enable LDAP authentication on this new install (we authenticate at present using our Active Directory server with Xerte)?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance,

Kind regards,
