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 :)).
