I've been searching, unsuccessfully, to figure out how to change the encryption key within HSQL/Unimus. I see the key in /etc/unimus/unimus.properties, and then database.encryption.key. But the issue I'm having is actually changing the HSQL db key so that I can update this file with the new key?

Sorry, this is not possible. To change the encryption key, the whole DB would have to be decrypted with the old key, and re-encrypted with the new key.

We currently don't support this.
