The MySQL documentation seems to cover this pretty well:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/upgrading.html

You'd want to update RT to the latest patch release to make sure your
version is compatible with the newer MySQL of course.

I'd advise that you follow up on http://dba.stackexchange.com/ if you're
stuck with the MySQL side of things.
