||Hi Klaus,

Recently, i've upgrade own RT from 4.0.6 to  4.4.0 and OS to jessie too.

I've made a fresh install of Debian Jessie, install RT from the source
(not from the deb), dump the old RT database to the new server, and
apply these scripts to upgrade the database :

    rt-setup-database --action upgrade --force --skip-create
--upgrade-from 4.0.6 --upgrade-to 4.3.13

I my case, it was necessary to re-run the "content" one shot (4.0.9 &
4.1.4) because they failed in the first execution time.

    rt-setup-database --action insert --datafile
etc/upgrade/4.0.9/content --skip-create
    rt-setup-database --action insert --datafile
etc/upgrade/4.1.4/content --skip-create

Upgrade somethings

    perl -I ~/rt/lib/ etc/upgrade/time-worked-history
    perl -I ~/rt/lib/ etc/upgrade/vulnerable-passwords  --fix

Update you RT_SiteConfig.pm like it was describe in the documentation

And it was a success !
