I can't speak for the sql, but probably be ok there. I will warn you against simply copying the FR config files from something that old. I've seen several problems on here over the last few years relating to simply copying config files from old versions to new.

The general impression I get is to not mess with the default confs unless you have to, and then make small changes at a time and test between each.

Hi all. Looking forward to picking your brains regarding FreeRADIUS as I’m kinda new to it. I took over administrative duties for the person who previously took care of our network and I’m trying to work with some of the FreeRADIUS settings and update to a newer version in the process. Current version is 1.0.4 (I know, it ancient), however also in the middle of a CentOS build while hoping to deploy that latest version of FreeRADIUS.

I have a curious question though. Since the current version is substantially older than what we’re moving to, how will this affect the sql database? Will I be able to install the newest version of FreeRADIUS and just perform a mysql dump from the old server to the new one?

Thanks in advance,
