  You can't just use the same database with a newer version of the server.  That's what major version changes mean.

  The database tables are similar, but you will have to:

* add an "operator" column  (see the schema)
* assign values to the "operator" column (see rlm_sql in the wiki)
* change all uses of "Password" to "Cleartext-Password := ..."

  That's the bulk of it.  It *will* be a manual process.  It's impossible to automate it.
