Note :
I use MySQL, commands may have to be adapted for another database.

a) connect to your database, as a user with enough rights on the
    database rt3 (I used root) :

    mysql  -u root -p
    Password: *********

b) select the rt3 base and update the Ticket table :

    mysql>use rt3;
    mysql>alter table Tickets auto_increment=3846;

I had to give more than one try and, still I do not remember if
the number to put here is the next number to use or the current one,
in which case the next will be this one plus one.
