BTW, you'll want to tweak some things between the two .conf files,
especially if the 8.1.3 server has more memory. Faster drive array means
you probably want to tweak random_page_cost down.
Also, 8.1.3 has a lot of new config settings compared to 7.4.x; it'd
probably be best to take the default 8.1 config and tweak it, rather
than bringing the 7.4 config over.
