There currently is no conversion program. The latest rev (.16) enables the use of the new API to vset, vget and vdel the _limits functions. They allow either file or mysql tables depending on the compiled in version (with the --enable-mysql-limits=y/n). Currently the first (and only) program using the limits API is qmailadmin 1.0.9. The table and row are automatically created when a new domain is added. Rows are deleted when the domain is deleted.
Want to write the conversion program? Should be simple. Just one source file that uses the "file" vget_limits() and the "mysql" vset_limits() and iterate over the current domains. Possibly remove the old .qmailadmin-limits file as well.
