A better suggestion would be to look at the cyrus-wiki


Follow the link CyrusAdministration->Backup

These are only things you should take care of when you're upgrading.
Follow the instructions backwards, i.e. first read the section 
"Upgrading from 2.1.x or earlier", then "Upgrading from 2.2.0 or 
earlier" and so on. Of course you don't have to repeat the same steps 
(i.e. you just have to run masssievec once).
