Hi,

I'm currently setting up 2 new servers to act as a PgSQL cluster (8.2).

This basically consists in the reinstallation of the OS (64Bit).

Question:
I'd like to know if it is possible (and wise) to just keep the
/var/lib/postgres...... directories from the old 32Bit server to use on
the 64Bit version.

This is just as a personal interest since I can also just dump and
restore the database in about 2.5 hrs.

Thanks

Laurent
