I’ve been following along with user’s experience in moving to RT4. In order
to see if I wanted to upgrade my RT3.8.4 I’ve been using at my work place
for the last 2 years I installed a fresh virtual machine with a vanilla RT4
install. I like it and would like to use it for production.
I would prefer to import the data into RT4 than upgrade the existing 3.8.4.
I do nightly mysqldumps of the database and tar up the contents
*, /usr/share/request-tracker3.8 and */etc/request-tracker3.8
My question is : "It possible to run the upgrade scripts on the database and
get the data in the new instance (RT4) without actually upgrading my 3.8.4?"
or do I have to run the upgrade process on my 3.8.4 instance?
Maybe I missed it, I’ve struggled searching old posts - is there a step by
step guide for doing this?
Thanks in advance.
