This is a quick and dirty list of 
the things that need to be done to move an RT1 instance from one host
to another are as follows:
        Install RT on the new host.
        On the old host: 
         mysqldump rt  > rtdb
         tar cvf transactions.tar rt/transactions

        copy those files to the new host.

        On the new host
          mysqladmin drop rt
          mysqladmin create rt
          mysql rt <rtdb
          cd /opt/rt; tar xvf transactions.tar

         on your rt install dir on the new host:
          make fixperms

There are no supercomputer applications that are solvable that cannot be solved
in finite time using a fucking TRS-80 with approprite disk/tape drives.  Zero.
