Backups from ciphermail 3.2.7-5 cannot be imported into new version 4.6.2-0

Hi there,

I wanted to update a ciphermail 3.2.7-5 installation (based on Ubuntu 14.04).
Therefore, I installed a new appliance (4.6.2-0) and tried to restore a backup from the old appliance.
Unfortunately, I did not see any of the settings...

Now my questions:

  * Could it be, that the previous system is not an appliance, but was installed manually (I did not install it, nor do I know how it was installed)? Have previous versions been based on Ubuntu Linux?
  * How can I get the data from the old appliance to the new one?
  * Would it also be possible to both update the OS (using Ubuntu's mechanisms) and then update the ciphermail packages and by that keep all my settings?

Best regards,
i. A. Thomas Schachtner
