Ken has defined the steps very well so there is no need to repeat them here.
I will just chime in that this was almost too easy. I moved from 5.2.X to
6.0.8 in a very short time and without any problems. I just decided to
upgrade one day when I was bored and then about an hour later ---- done.
Usually, the biggest issue you may face is if you forget to change absolute
paths (if you load into something like /ud/udxx where xx is the version).
You shouldn't really have any absolute paths to begin with, but, I'm never
surprised to see them pop up (even after I get rid of them). Use PATHSUB to
make these changes, but, be careful to not make a mistake.
