Upgrade From 3.4.0 to 3.6.6

All,

I’m looking to upgrade from RT version 3.4.0 (RH 7.2/MySQL 4.0.20/Apache
1.3.33) to 3.6.6 (CentOS 4.6/MySQL 5.0.22/Apache 2.x). I checked out a
guide on the wiki
(http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/MigrateToNewServer) but I would like
to know if there are any DB schema changes that would prevent me from
just installing 3.6.6 on another server, then simply doing a mysqldump
and migrating the database schema from the old 3.4.0 server.

Thanks!

Dan,
I did that when I rebuilt my server but I went from one version of
Fedora to another. I haven’t seen any issues … yet.

Just follow the procedure in the README file, here is a part of the
Upgrading procedure in this file which will help you answer your
question :wink:

You may also need to update RT’s database. To find out, type:

   ls etc/upgrade

 For each item in that directory whose name is greater than
 your previously installed RT version, run:

   /opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database --action schema \
       --datadir etc/upgrade/<version>
   /opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database --action acl \
       --datadir etc/upgrade/<version>
   /opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database --action insert \
        --datadir etc/upgrade/<version>

[…]

I tried installing RT but when I am running apache service it is
displaying PERL Error.

First, please don’t write only to me, but to
rt-users@lists.bestpractical.com instead, you will get more help :wink:

Second, if you wan’t someone to help you, describe better your problem,
send at least the error displayed …
