Update RT 5.0 to 5.0.1

sorry for such a basic question maybe. But i’d like to confirm some things.
I’m running RT5.0 and would like to apply the RT 5.0.1 update. I’m looking for exact steps/commands.
It’s a pretty basic 5.0 install, with some extensions, but nothing that exciting.
What steps do i follow after downloading the 5.0.1 archive?

Since there are no database changes from 5.0.0 -> 5.0.1 you can just re-run the:

./configure --some-options

make fixdeps

make install


Just remember to take a backup of both the database and RT installation directories first - Just In Case! Also make sure that any of your locally tweaked code/config/Mason files is in the /opt/rt5/local directory hierarchy - the update won’t touch anything in there but if you’ve hacked on the code/config/Mason files outside of there they might well get blown away.

thanks for the answers.
i do have to keep wondering why this was not documented that well. To me, it was not that logical to run these commands for to perform a minor update. Including these simple steps in the upgrade README would be a good suggestion i think. Some general update guides with some guidance and runbook-commands would be the best.

Those are steps 2, 4 and 6b in the README.
