Hi Pessottino,

Yes, you are right that the database is updated, and the way that links work is different (better, actually). If possible, you might want to restore the old database and phplist directory, and then make a copy of the database, and install the new software version in a new directory, and use the database copy you just made. Doing it this way will keep the old system working, and will create the new version with the old data, ready to move forward.

I once read that the cardinal rule of working with computers is "Never do anything that cannot be undone"....
