Very good that you did it in a lab first!

The proper upgrade path is to read everything at 
https://docs.powerdns.com/authoritative/upgrading.html from 4.2 to 4.5,
and see what applies to you.

You say you had database troubles - anything not covered in that
document? If so, perhaps we can improve the text.

As for powerdns admin, I have no experience with it; other readers
might, so perhaps you can share more details about in what way it is

Kind regards,
