I have to admit, it's been a while since our forum has been upgraded. However, I'm generally used to habit of testing things locally before deploying them to production... it's just best practice. Of course, I'm curious how safe it is to just follow the upgrade procedure outlined in the XF manual. How safe is it really to just upgrade like that without any catastrophic problems? I'm not extremely familiar with the codebase but I know enough that I brought it up on my own just by following the installation directions. Would appreciate anyone's experience with upgrading XF, positive and negative. Thanks in advance! P.S. Looking to upgrade from 1.2.0 to 1.4.4.
