The following relates to rt 1.0.7.
I have to move RT from machine A to B… I did a fresh install and then
overwrote the new mysql database with the original… And I’ve now lost
access to the message bodies…
I’ve also copied the old transactions… Help… users are screaming at
More exciting information:
I shut the rt interface down, so I can play without affecting the users.
Now… I copied mysql/var/rt to mysql/var/rt-broke
then went into mysql and did a DROP DATABASE rt;
Next… moved /usr/local/rt1 to usr/local/rt1-broke
Changed the uid from 42 to 60001, to match the previous system it was
“make install” from source.
The new database behaves exactly the same as the old… though I tried
creating/commenting from the web interface, and that works fine (the text
is displayed)… otherwise, the text is gone.
Now… there is no trace of the ‘old’ data on the system whatsoever… but
the behavior is still there.
