Upgrading from 3.0.11 to 3.4.4

Hi.

I have been given the task to upgrade RT from 3.0.11 to 3.4.4.
I have installed 3.4.4 on a temporary box with apache 1.3.27, mysql
4.0.26 with mod_perl and mod_ssl compiled statically in apache.

I will have to upgrade the database schema/tables to accommodate for 3.4.4
I’ve gone through the mysql schemas for both 3.0.12 and 3.4.4 (assuming
that 3.0.12 is the same as 3.0.11; let me know if I’m wrong :slight_smile:

Any suggestions on what would be the best upgrade scenario?

My first scenario was this:
-Do a fresh install of 3.4.4, upgrade the database tables to whatever is
required.
-Alter a 2.7GIG database dump from the old 3.0.11 so that it fits into
the new 3.4.4 schema. (this sounds like an impossible thing to do!).

So I may have to do incremental upgrades from 3.0.11

Any suggestions or thoughts welcome,

Kind regards.
Luke.

Any suggestions or thoughts welcome,

  1. read README and UPGRADING files
  2. you shouldn’t change DB manually, there is directory with scripts
    that change database schema for you in RT’s distribution(again read
    README)

Kind regards.
Luke.
