I am pretty new to reviewboard and have attempted to migrate reviewboard 
instance across hosts and versions.
Our older RB version was and the upgrade was to

Steps followed for the upgrade were
(1) Dump data on the older server (mysql)
(2) Drop the previously created reviewboard database, created by rb-site 
(3) Manually create a database named reviewboard with UTF8
(4) load the data from the mysql dump
(5) Run rb-site upgrade.

Post the upgrade which completed successfully, the dashboard, contents and 
other information came up properly, including the repository listing.
But, the issue is that neither the properties of repositories are editable 
in newer instance nor or the older diff's from reviews accessible . The 
creation of newer reviews for the repositories, which get imported are as 
well not happening due to this..

While trying to access the repository from Manage -> Repositories -> Select 
repository to change is as below.
Something broke! (Error 500)

It appears something broke when you tried to go to here. This is either a 
bug in Review Board or a server configuration error. Please report this to 
your administrator.

Please note that the creation of newer repositories and using them for 
review requests.

The errors in the server error log are similar to the ones below.

Can someone please throw light on what the issue is and how it could be
