Automatic log in as root under Windows

Hello all,

I installed RT a few days ago to tweak it to suit our needs. For now dev is on Windows, but the final version will run on Linux. Even though I created a few users with privileges (Let this user access RT, Let this user be granted rights) I never see the login page - I get directly logged in as root. Tried everything I can think of. Cleared all cookies from my three browsers (IE, Opera, Firefox), tried from a LAN comp that never before accessed RT (Win/Opera) and also from a distant Linux box with lynx. All the same - I am already logged in as root and the logout button doesn’t work. Even tried emptying the sessions table with no success.

I looked at the WIKI and searched the mailing lists, but without success. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Al…

I’m running RT 2.0.13 and should have upgraded to 3.4.x ages ago, but I am
finally looking in to how to do that now. I’m running it on Debian Woody
but the upgrade will go to Sarge or possible even unstable, on a new PC.
The database will be PostgreSQL.

I see that there is a nice Debian package available for both testing and
unstable, which I am guessing will be upgraded to the May 4th release
soon. Installing the new RT 3.4.x seems easy enough.

What I am wondering, though, is if it is possible to migrate the existing
data from my RT 2.0.x the new RT 3.4.x installation. I searched around
the Best Proactical site but didn’t find any information about how to do
this. Ideally, I would want to do this after the installation is complete
and the new RT is configured.

Can this be done? Thanks very much.

Look for the rt2-to-rt3 package in the Contributions section under downloads.
Make sure to dump the data BEFORE you install the updated version of RT and fix
the dependancies.

If this is how you want to do it, you will need to get a second box set up and
begin by installing 3.2.2 or 3.2.3 on it. AFAIK, the dumpfile-to-rt3 script
won’t import cleanly into rt 3.4.x. Import your data, unpack RT 3.4.x, fix
dependencies, and make upgrade. Be sure to run the schema/acl/content changes
after the upgrade.

Hi Drew,

Would this be the same mentality with MySQL as the db engine?

Tim

Yes, this is db-independant. The rt2-to-rt3 package was written for 3.1.17 (I
think)/3.2.x and there were some pretty major schema changes for 3.4.x. There
should be instructions for upgrading the schema after you do make upgrade on a
3.2.x installation.

Also, please make sure to CC the list so that others can give input and so that
the answers are put in the list archives.

Hope this gets you going.
