Rt-2.x copy from one server to another

I’m trying to do a copy of current RT installation from one machine to
Have done mysqldump of current db.
Have setup blank RT installation on new server.
Ok, everything looks fine.
Next I do restoring of DB(mysql rt2 < rt_cur.dump) - OK
Restart apache - OK
Going to login - OK
Have got login under user from current server’s DB.
But all lists is empty and can’t create new queue or user or something else.
All logs are empty.
Any suggestions are wellcome.
I can add some aditional information.
Best regards, Ruslan.

Sorry, but rt logging was off.

I don’t understand why during transaction it try to write in
mySQL user is mysql, but this dir is owned by ROOT.
Ofcouse this error may be only mysql related, but I didn’t find anything
helpful trough googling.
Beforehead thanks. Ruslan.

Hello again and again.
Problem is resolved.
It’s problem of my system. Somewhere something set TMPDIR =
/tmp/.private/root and mysql like a good worker try to use it :frowning: instead
of /tmp or something else more public.


  1. Additional arg to mysqld --tmpdir=… or to safe_mysqld
  2. In /etc/my.cnf in section mysqld string "tmpdir=…"
