4.0b3 to 6.49.6

Wed Aug 17, 2022 10:05 pm

I exported my database from 4.0 beta3 and imported to 6.49.6 CHR. The new version isn't starting and I can't figure out where to go from here:
[admin@MikroTik] > /dude import-db backup-file=dude/dude-backup-2022.08.17.tgz 

  status: enabling back after import: cannot read database

[admin@MikroTik] >

Expanded the disk space from the initial 64MB size to 2GB. Import was much more successful, however the database stops after about 10 seconds:

19:14:13 echo: dude,critical db failure: database or disk is full
[admin@MikroTik] > 
Any thoughts here?

It's better if you start from scratch.

There are so many differences, that even I had tried (successfully) to migrate the database,
BUT there were so many problems, not immediately visible,
that after some time constantly looking for where the errors were,
I started from scratch , and now it works perfectly.

In summary: You better start from scratch, it will take you less time than constantly looking for problems and banging your head to solve them.
