I’ve got an install of RT 3.8.8 (and MySQL) on an ancient Debian machine. It was installed from Debian packages. It has about 11k tickets in just one queue. I’d like to bring it up to a recent and supported version.
I think I’d prefer to do it by provisioning a new host rather than doing anything on the existing host.
Let’s say I provision a new Debian host with MariaDB and import the database backup from the existing host. Could I expect to be able to run
make upgrade-database from the RT 5.0.1 tarball and have it cope with upgrading the schema of that database?
If not, any other suggestions as to how best to tackle this?
