I'm soon about to upgrade my forum from version 1.1 to 1.4. I've read various guides here on the forum (especially those by @Brogan) and I've also been doing some thinking what the best way to upgrade would be.
So far I've done a raw list of all my currently installed Add-on. I've gone through the list and marked those I will keep and those I will uninstall.
When I upgrade I will...
- Backup DB
- Uninstall unwanted add-ons
- Upgrade add-ons that are supported in version 1.4.x
- Disable add-ons that are not officially supported in version 1.4.x
- Upgrade the forum to 1.4.x
- Enable the add-ons, one by one, that are not officially supported
I will add more steps as I continue to plan my run book for this event.
