NAME

cvt_cyrusdb - Cyrus IMAP documentation

Convert a database file between cyrus database formats

SYNOPSIS

cvt_cyrusdb [ -C config-file ] old-file old-fileformat new-file new-file-format

DESCRIPTION

cvt_cyrusdb is used to convert a cyrusdb file between different database backends. Note that you should not attempt to use the same file for input and output.

Running without any options will list the available database backends.

cvt_cyrusdb reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C.

NOTE:

Note that the file locations are NOT read out of the configuration file, and must be supplied on the command line.


OPTIONS

-C config-file
Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the default imapd.conf(5).

EXAMPLES

cvt_cyrusdb /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db skiplist /tmp/mailboxes.db berkeley-nosync
Convert /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db from skiplist format to /tmp/mailboxes.db in berkeley-nosync format.
