Previously the configuration file was in /etc/collectd.conf

The old init script is still pointing to /etc/collectd.conf
What would be the best approach (especially for migration)

Method #4:
if [ ! -e /etc/collectd/collectd.conf ]; then
ln -s ../collectd.conf /etc/collectd/; fi

Thank you for the time invested.
