i have just migrated our current rt system to new hw.
the old system runs rt 3.0.8, rtfm 2.0.1 on fc1 with mysql 4.0.13,
apache 1.3.27, perl 5.8.0
the new system runs rt 3.2.2, rtfm 2.0.4 on RH EL3 with mysql 4.0.22,
apache 1.3.31, perl 5.8.5
i transferred the database like this:
old server: mysqldump -p --opt rt3 | gzip >
new server: gzip -dc rt3.dump.gz | mysql rt3
this appears to have worked. i can login and see all the old
tickets/queues/users on the new system.
my question is: will all the database schema changes between rt versions
remain intact now that i essentially “overwrote” the new database? is
this upgrade procedure kosher?
