Questions about installation with bundled Tomcat

Hello -

We don't currently use an app server, so I've tried using the version of TC with the bundled Tomcat. With that I have two questions:

1) What's the upgrade procedure with this scenario? I'm assuming I'll lose my data if I just nuke the whole Tomcat directory.

2) (Slightly related) Would it be better to point it at a remote MySQL instance? Would that get rid of the problem? If so, how do I do that.

Thanks for the help. I'm a low-level guy and don't use these new-fangled app servers much. ;)

Nope, TC stores its data inside the ".Buildserver" folder in the home
folder of user account it was started under.

You can switch to MySQL by editing WEB-INF\buildServerSpring.xml in the
TC web app folder (look for hsqlDbSettings and mysqlDbSettings). Note
that project configuration data are NOT stored in the database, so after
switching you will loose only the build histories. Also there's a
migration tool planned (see ttp://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/TW-1129)
