Do you update your forum immediately when there is a new update?

    Do you update your forum immediately when there is a new xenforo update or you like to wait and take your time?
    I usually wait a few days to update my forum just in case the newer updates consist of any major bugs. And generally unless its a major update I wont upgrade as soon.

    I usually wait a few days (or longer, considering I'm still on 1.0.0 :oops:), but it's just because I'm lazy. :ROFLMAO:

    Keeping your forum up to date any time a new version is released is the best practise, security wise in my personal opinion. I am a tech admin at more than a dozen forums and I always upgrade them almost as soon as a new version is released, especially when it fixes known security issues.

    i NEVER upgrade immediately, without testing at the stage system...
    my vB practice for my big heavy customized boards is:

    1. clean local install + play around with it
    2. local upgrade with a small db dump + play around with it
    3. upgrade @ staging system + heavy selenium testing

    if everything is ok => upgrade

    everything is happening automated with some bash + selenium scripts

    (no, i don't do this for patchlevels, small maintenance releases and boards without add-ons^^)

    I usually don't, for 2 reasons -
    1. I'm lazy
    2. I'm busy.

    Not really.. I just upgrade whenever I see in the notes that there is some feature/fix that I need. Some of them are so minor I can probably live without it and skip that version.

    A security fix, though, is a different topic. I try to upgrade as soon as possible for those.

    But just upgrading for the sake of upgrading, no. I am over that now.

    I always update my local install and my WebDav test install, and then update my main site when I'm sure everything is stable.

    I test everything on my demo forum which is on a freehost, but I havent got to having a local install. You need xampp for that right?
