Migrating Your Account Database to an ODBC Accessible Store

3. If required, enter the data source's Logon and Password.
4. Click Next.

6. Type the file path (or Browse) to the desired script file that you wish to use to create the tables for your database application. The \MDaemon\app\ folder contains scripts for several of the most popular database applications.

7. Click Run script and create database tables now, Click OK, and click Close.
8. Click Finish, and click OK to close the Account Database dialog.
9. A database migration tool will migrate all of your user accounts to the ODBC data source and then close MDaemon. Click OK, and then restart MDaemon and begin using the new ODBC account database.
