Upgrade from 3.0.11 to 3.2.2 (Upgrade procedure or new install)

Hello,

we plan to upgrade out RT from 3.0.11 to 3.2.2.
Since we plan to install in an a new server how should this be done?

Is it possible to install a blank version of 3.2.2 and just fill the
database with the existing 3.0.11 db data, or should i install 3.0.11 first
and then upgrade to 3.2.2 ?

Thanks for help.

shut down your old RT web service
copy the database to the new server using your db tools (mysqldump,
pg_dump, etc)
do an install following the “upgrade” procedure, including applying the
schema changes.

done.

Could you be a bit more specific on your last item of your instructions?

  1. Do the RT 3.2.2 installation ?
  2. Followed by ‘what’ upgrade proceedure ?
  3. Is the ‘applying the schema change’ done within in the upgrade section ?

Thank you for your help?

    Do it like in README, but use ‘5b’ instead of ‘5a’.
  2. Followed by ‘what’ upgrade proceedure ?
    ‘5b’ is an upgrade procedure that doesn’t init db, but upgrade it.
  3. Is the ‘applying the schema change’ done within in the upgrade section ?
    yes. read README.

Don’t forget to copy RT_SiteConfig.pm and also read new config for new
options.

Thank you
