I’m planning to upgrade 188.8.131.52 to the latest stable version.
I will copy the live environment (files + database) and perform the update in the copy using the connect manager. I want to take my time for this upgrade because I read the’re can be a lot of problems/issues (theme, extentions, core mods etc) that need to be addressed.
So when I finish fixing all problems the upgraded copy will work smoothly (I hope) and I can replace the live environment with the upgraded copy. That is: files only because the upgraded database will be outdated. So how to upgrade the live database?
I’m thinking of making a second copy of the live environment right before I actually start upgrading the live environment., upgrade this second copy using the connect manager and than copy the upgraded database back to the live environment together with the upgraded files of the first copy.
What do you think. Will this have a chance?
Thanks for your comments.
