- Back up your Avalon 5.0 installation
- Stand up an R6 instance following the Manual Installation Instructions and run it concurrently with an existing R5 instance.
- Make R5 fedora accessible to the server running the R6 instance. (See the fedora migration step below.)
- Use the same authentication scheme for R6 as the one used for R5. Otherwise there could be issues with users/roles.
- Ensure the R6 instance is empty. Run wipeout rake task to clean out R6 database, solr, and fedora.
