Hi Victor,

I searched (and found) some procedure, which was basically this:

-Package the current postgresql and install that in /tmp
-rename the current data directory
-delete current packages and install new ones
-initdb new database
-use some command to =E2=80=98copy=E2=80=99 (not cp ;) ) to transport old da=
ta to new

I don=E2=80=99t have the url currently available, but it wasn=E2=80=99t that=
 hard to find either.=20
