[smokeping-users] Upgrading Smokeping = losing datas of years?

Hi Kormen;

Just a guess based on the error message, but maybe the upgrade process 
is overwriting portions of your config file (highly possible if you're 
using packages for your OS rather than building from source), 
particularly the section relating to the RRD database configuration.

I'd suggest checking your config files to make sure your RRD settings 
(step, count, etc) match up before and after the upgrade process.
