*Important Note:

Upgrading from pre-6.x versions:*

The database file format has substantially changed between versions 5.x 
and  6.x. To upgrade your database, you must dump all data from the 
version 5.x database and re-load it into version 6.x. Complete 
instructions may be found /here/ 
<http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com/dataspace/dav/wiki/Main/UpgradingToVOS610>/./

*Upgrading from earlier 6.x versions:*

The database file format has not changed, but the introduction of a 
newer RDF index requires you run a script to upgrade the RDF_QUAD table. 
Since this can be a lengthy task and take extra disk space (up to twice 
the space used by the original RDF_QUAD table may be required during 
conversion) this is not done automatically on startup. Complete 
instructions may be found /here/ 
<http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com/dataspace/dav/wiki/Main/UpgradingToVOS610>.
