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.
