Sometimes it is necessary to restore a backup using an earlier backup file than webxdb.1. This requires restoring multiple rollback logs simultaneously.


There is no built-in way to bring the database current using more than one rollback log. The solution is to concatenate the rollback logs, with the oldest rollback log at the top of the file and the newest at the bottom. Rename the concatenated file to "webxroll.1", rename the older backup file to "webxdb.1", rename or delete "webx.db", then start Web Crossing.
