Upgrade Directory

I need to know where the extracted src 3.8.8 has to be during the upgrade from 3.8.4. Do I have to copy the entire directory to the current 3.8.4 directory before doing the upgrade? I have read the READ ME and there is no where in there that they stated it.

Honestly, I will need a step by step instruction to do the upgrade. I have never done the upgrade before. And I am new to the whole RT setup, I just took over a position and they wanted me to upgrade to the latest version.

Thanks

just follow “GENERAL INSTALLATION” in README, upgrade instructions are
provided when needed.

to quickly answer, you untar RT in another directory than your
production one (some kind of src or tmp directory). You follow steps the
same as for installation, but:

  • you read UPGRADING file
  • you run make upgrade instead of make install

but once again, read carefully README file, everything you need is
inside.

PS: don’t forget to backup before upgrade…

I will try that. Thanks-----Original Message-----

Depending on your system you’ll need to install them, possibly together
with the developer packages to get gd to compile.

You need to install the gd package from your OS vendor. If this is RHEL, the
package would be gd and gd-devel that needs installed, if this is
Ubuntu/Debian, you need libgd2-xpm and libgd2-xpm-devel. For FreeBSD and
friends search their ports trees accordingly.
