    I run mbse on a CentOS 6.5 32bit system.

    What would I need to do to move the mbse setup to a CentOS 7.0 64bit

    Would copying the files across, and re-compiling the exe's be all
    that's needed or will more work be required?

    There are no user's on my system as it's only used as a FTN HUB setup.

    When I transferred to x64 from i86 it went smoothly, I compiled mbse on a X64 system
    and installed the system then I copied over all of the x86 mbse system files but NOT
    the binaries (~/bin directory) to the new system overwriting the newly created install data files etc.

    Worked straight away.

    Watch out if you have changed the paths of mbse or any of the data areas though and
    change them in the setup procedures after the 'copy' !

    Also when coping use the preserve date & attribute settings when using cp, e.g., 'cp
    -a ' or 'cp -p ' etc.
