3.4.a to 3.4.b Upgrade Process

Hi Guru's,

I know I am being HUGELY dense here, but I am struggling with the upgrade process from 3.4.a to 3.4.d and wondered if anyone could help me with some of the instructions that are documented here;

I have shutdown the current deployment and backed up all the files within /opt/alfresco-3.4.a as well as did a mysqldump of the MySQL database (I am using a seperate deployment of MySQL rather than the built in version).

1. The instructions say I should install a new deployment into a new directory, which I have /opt/alfresco-3.4.d, but doesn't say if I should use a new database for that as well?  Do I install into a new database instance or over the top of the current database?

2. To get the content store back do I just copy the /opt/alfresco/3.4.a/alf_data to /opt/alfresco-3.4.d/alf_data before I restart the new deployment and the system upgrades the repository as it starts up?

Many thanks for any of your help.
