It's important to keep in mind that this is an upgrade path you 
carefully have to do. Check each new version for the requirements 
regarding PHP and MySQL versions. You will have to upgrade those too 
during the whole process when a new TYPO3 version doesn't support the

Database Compare and read the INSTALL.txt, NEWS.txt and the upgrade 
guides in the wiki [1] for thing that need extra attention.
