       astdb2bdb - convert astdb back to Berkeley DB 1.86

       cd astvarlibdir && astdb2bdb path/to/astdb.sqlite3

       Up until version version 11, Asterisk used an old version of the Berke‐
       ley DB 1.86 (bdb) to store its internal persistent database. In version
       11  it  switched	 to using a SQLIte 3 database. This program is used to
       convert the newly-formatted SQLite 3 astdb back to bdb.

       You may need it in case of reverting an upgrade or other	 similar  sce‐

       There  is  a  single  (and required) parameter: the path the the sqlite
       file.  The output file will be a file called astdb in the current work‐
       ing directory.

       In  case	 you  want to revert an upgrade to Asterisk 11, you can do the
       following (while Asterisk is not running):

	 cd /var/lib/asterisk && astdb2bdb astdb.sqlite3 && rm astdb.sqlite3

       This will convert the newly-formatted astdb back to the old format, and
       delete it (to avoid obsolete data copies).

       Berkeley	 DB  1.86  is obsolete. It is incompatible with newer versions
       (4.x and newer) that you may see around. Chances are you don't have the
       tools to use it independently of Asterisk.
