Should I enable the read-only mode prior to upgrades?

(ljpp) #1

Here is what I currently do:

  • Enable read-only
  • Backup
  • Upgrade

Discourse however jumps out of read-only after an upgrade and sometimes there are multiple components to update (like today: Beta 9, Docker manager and spoler alert) and every upgrade turns off the read-only mode.

Does it make a difference during upgrades? How do you do it here on Meta or some other busy site?
