Hello. I did a test install of Unimus to see if I would like it for my company. We are moving forward with it and I would like to re-create the database with a stronger encryption key. Is this possible? Or do I need to reinstall unimus as a whole?

Thank you,
Dylan

Hi. You can stop the service, delete / drop the DB and restart. This will drop you back into the Deploy Wizard, but since the config file was not deleted, most of the information will be loaded from it into the Wizard. Change the DB encryption key during the DB setup step, and finish the wizard.

You will of course lose data since the DB was dropped, but a full reinstall is not needed, and since the config file is retained, the redeploy should be quite fast :)
