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