i may be the only one, but upgrading any software for me is a scary experience.

i would like to suggest that there should he a sticky somewhere here that tells you the exact steps to upgrade and that the notice in the magento backend:

“Magento version now available
Magento version is now available for download and upgrade. This version includes some updates to improve admin security as described in the release notes page.”

should link to a page with instructions on how to upgrade as the current link doesn’t provide these instructions.

ive searched the resources and forums and cannot find a definitive guide to upgrading.

im hesitant to follow instructions for earlier releases as things may have changed.

any help would be really appreciated.

thank you.
