Radicale version 2 uses a new storage format and is not able to read databases created by version 1. Version 1 releases starting from 1.1.3 include a --export-storage option which can be used to export their databases in a format that Radicale 2 can use; you must do this before upgrading to version 2.

If you have kept the Gentoo-default database configuration, this will work: 1. Stop any running instance of Radicale. 2. Run `radicale --export-storage ~/radicale-exported`. 3. Run `chown -R radicale: ~/radicale-exported` 4. Run `mv /var/lib/radicale /var/lib/radicale.old`. 5. Install Radicale version 2. 6. Run `mv ~/radicale-exported /var/lib/radicale/collections`.

For more details, or if you are have a more complex configuration, please see the migration guide: http://radicale.org/1to2/ If you do a custom migration, please ensure the database is cleaned out of /var/lib/radicale, including the hidden .props file.
