[mythtv-users] Can a backup of a 0.20 database be imported to a 0.21 install?

I'm going to be migrating from 0.20 to 0.21 soon and at the same time
undertaking a hardware reconfiguration and change of OS. I have everything
else mapped out and planned well and I feel very confident in the migration.

One piece remains though that is uncharted territory for me as I am not much
of a MySQL expert, or very knowledgable about databases in general. I need
to know if it's possible to migrate my MythTV database data by backing it up
and restoring it. I've done this before, but only in a 0.20 to 0.20
situation and I know there are significant differences in 0.21.

So, has anyone done this? If so do you have documentation?

The best thing I have found so far is here:
and following the directions up through 23.7

Thanks in advance everyone.
