10 #warning("Since XWiki Enterprise 1.5 the Administration is an application made of wiki pages. Our default distributions (installers, standalone, wiki) are including it. If you are upgrading your wiki from a previous installation you can download this application from <a href='http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Applications/AdministrationApplication'>here</a> but our advice is to go through the usual upgrading process which involves using the default wiki XAR, as described <a href='#HCommonMigrationnotes'>there</a>.")

77 1.1 Common Migration notes
78
79 #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>.")
80
81 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.
82
83 #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.")
