I have a dev site installed at beta.domainname.com (in a subdirectory called beta). My core_config_data setting points to beta.domainname.com. When I try to upgrade from 1.3.1 to 1.4, magento connect over writes files in the root as well as beta.domainname.com.
Should I point the core_config_data url setting to www.domainname.com/beta instead of beta.domainname.com? What do I need to do to stop this from happening?
