You must completely stop the server before switching overview
methods. In addition, with ovdb, there's an extra step that needs
to be performed before running makehistory: you have to start the
database supervisor processes.
(as your news user)
ctlinnd shutdown x
[edit inn.conf to switch ov method]
[delete tradindexed files]
makehistory -O -x -F
dbprocs stop (because rc.news will do a dbprocs start)
This applies to STABLE and earlier. For CURRENT, you use ovdb_init
instead of dbprocs.
