If you’re migrating from the same version of RT and MySQL, I would think
you could just do a mysqldump then import it into an empty database on
the new box.

Subject: [rt-users] How to upgrade a db on a remote box.
How does one migrate a database as in the README file if the database is
on a separate server? Would I actually have to install RT on the
database box? I am not doing this, but I was curious and didn’t see the
answer in the README or a google search.
Be sure to check out the RT Wiki at http://wiki.bestpractical.com
Unfortunately, I was going from 3.0.0 to 3.4.1. The migration was
definitely required. As I was going through the steps, however, I began
to wonder what would happen if the database was on another machine. I
didn’t see an option for specifying a different database name nor a
different server unless they are being taken from the RT_SiteConfig.pm file.
