Upgrade to 2.0.13 .. step by step?

So here’s what I can gather for instructions on upgrading 2.0.11 to 2.0.13
and I’d like some feedback before I go ahead and try it:

Download the rt.tar.gz
tar xzvf rt.tar.gz
cd rt-2-0-13
vi Makefile

  • change all options that are different on your install
    cp /path/to/rt2/etc/config.pm /etc/config.pm.backup
    make upgrade
    vi /path/to/rt2/etc/config.pm
  • reconfig based on the old backed up config
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart

Done?

No stopping of services, no recompliing of Perl, no dependency hunting?
Could it be that easy?

So here’s what I can gather for instructions on upgrading 2.0.11 to

In case the database has changed you also need to do this:

/path/to/rt2/etc/insertdata 2.0.11

Note that the version number you type there is that which you are
upgrading from.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart

Done?

Restarting ‘Apache’ isn’t good enough (see many, many responses to other
questions on this list as to why[*0]), so you need:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start

[*0] I’m only repeating the answer here cos the above list looked quite
good otherwise, it’s a useful thing to have in the archives, and it
wouldn’t be good for it to be archived with

No stopping of services, no recompliing of Perl, no dependency
hunting? Could it be that easy?

Almost.
