    Hello,

    I just updated my forum to 1.2.2 from 1.1.3. After reading, I decided to make a copy of my forum and to test it on it. Now I'm done with the update but I need to merge the databases.

    Which tables should (or should not) be merged so I can recover all the activity that has been going on on my forum?

    Thanks

    No merge, you have to run the upgrade again on your production environment.

    I've just spent about 10 hours fixing 80 templates manually. There must be a way I can keep those changes?

    Export the style you adjusted in your test 1.2, upgrade your 1.1, import the style into your now production 1.2

    Alright thanks. Is there a way to do the same with add-ons or it's easier to reinstall them?

    Reinstall them.
    I'd love to have a method for bulk install, so it doesn't rebuild after every single install and thereby making it much shorter.
    About to take the same step as you in a few days, give or take. Putting the final touches on my style and add-on selection for 1.1.4 -> 2.2
