I need to update my install and since its my first update I don’t want to mess anything up. Ofc I will perform a backup first… is there anything else I should be aware of for my first update? Is the site automatically taken offline? Is there a message generated to users to that effect?
Just trying to avoid the oops message. Any pointers would be appreciated… so TIA!!
A backup for sure, and even if everything should be fine, if you have some kind of vps feature for that, maybe a snapshot of the host , as surely there will be some database update to be done, might be easier than to restore from a backup if anything goes wrong (restore process that is interesting to practice by the way). Make a copy of the app.yml and write somewhere the SHA of the commit you’re on as an extra precaution ?
