Upgrading dbackup 1.1.0 to 1.1.1

If you’re one of the lucky few using dbackup, and want to upgrade from 1.1.0 to 1.1.1 so things work (I really shouldn’t use a minor version number increase to fix such a major bug), you’ll probably want to run the following command in your backup storage root:

rename 's/^([a-z./]+).(d+).(d+).(d+-d+-d+-d+-d+-d+).(meta|data)$/
sprintf("%s.%03d.%03d.%s.%s", $1, $2, $3, $4, $5)/ex' */*


This should be run as all one line. It requires the rename perl script, which is in the perl package on Debian/Ubuntu at least.
