Crowd Migration "database contains existing data."

I am trying to stand up a new crowd server.  I am going thru the setup and I selected restore from xml backup and trying to use an existing postgres database. I keep getting the error that stats " Database contains existing data".  I read the migrating data doc but I am unsure how to still get past this step since my crowd.cfg.xml file is still stuck on <setupStep>setupdatabase</setupStep>.  Thank you in advance.

Hi David,

You should take care in this step since the database contains data and thus is throwing this message to you. If you want to setup a new Crowd server, I suggest to select another database schema when starting crowd the first time. You can select the database schema in the connection string of Crowd and point it to another Postgres Schema to not overwrite the current one.

Cheers,

Rodrigo
