Upgrade to 4.2 to 4.3 help required



I have been using splunk 4.2.4. It has all my indexes and configurations
I wanted to upgrade it to 4.3 version.

For installing i made a mistake and i gave the path as

rpm -U --prefix /opt/Software/splunk splunk-4.3-115073-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm

instead of rpm -U --prefix /opt/Software/ splunk-4.3-115073-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm

where is /opt/Software/splunk is the SPLUNK_HOME

And now after upgrading it created /opt/Software/splunk/splunk and it is not having my configurations and indexes data in that folder. The old configurations are present in old path only.

So now i have upgraded version of splunk but it doesn't contain my indexes and configurations.

Please help me to correct it

try backing up your old path's contents, then deleting the new installation completely, then re-upgrading with the correct path. (the backup is just for peace of mind :)).
