Instructions for migrating the Crowd internal HSQDLB database to SQL Server

Does anyone have any experience with migrating Crowd from it's internal database (HSQDLB) to a SQL Server instance? I would imagine there is an Atlassian document on it but I have not had any luck finding one.

Migrate to Another Database has the instructions to migrate the database.

Thanks for this information! The document seems to outline migrating to a new server and migrating in the process. In my case, I'd like to upgrade my existing server, without changing anything other than the data store. Is there a way to change it without uninstalling and reinstalling my Crowd instance? It would be preferable if so

It's been a while since I played around with Crowd, but I don't think you can do the migration from within the tool, so after you done the XML backup you can follow these instructions to Restart the setup wizard from scratch.

@Mikael Sandberg is right, restarting from a fresh crowd.cfg.xml is the way to go.
