[rt-users] Migrating tickets from 4.0.24 to 4.4.1 (a new instance)

A few years ago I installed RT from the debian package repo, is it version 4.0.24 I believe. I have around ~900 historical tickets in there.

It seems more trouble than it is worth to try to “upgrade” this instance directly, because of the ways in which the debian package installs itself.   So I have set up a new, so far unused instance of RT 4.4.1 , also on debian (Jessie) but  installed from source code , as it seems this may provide a better upgrade path in the future should I want to update again.

I would like to import the ticket history from the old instance to the new one .. is there a recommended way for doing this, considering the versions are quite different? 

A further piece of info,  the old system did not use LDAP but the new one IS configured for LDAP auth for privileged users.  Im not really concerned with preserving the privileged users, Queues, or permissions .. theres only a few people who have used the system as a privileged user and I can sort that again , and probably should anyways.

Thank you for any help,

Kevin Long
