converting a postgresql database to new version format


After a reinstall, I lost my most recent backup in sql format and
instead I have the database directory. The big problem is that it is in
some old format, 8.1 doesnt accept it and 8.0.15 neither. Is there any
way to convert such database files to the recent format?

Sounds like you'll need the same version of Pg as they were created by.
