As a few of you have noticed from my earlier posts i am upgrading some apps to v9.1.3.
My process is the following:
- copy the live Site to a similar local dev env
- upgrade concrete (we use composer)
- fix all the things that needs fixing
- create a new instance on a php8 server > composer the whole shablang there
now is the problematic part: i need an upgraded db for the v9 site. i get that from my local setup that is sucessfully upgraded BUT between steps 1 and 4 there might be days (weeks) where the customer has made changes so i need to pull the live db again and set up a dummy concrete instance on v8 to connect to the production db and upgrade it again so i have a ready db for production v9
Is there any way to upgrade a v8 (8.5.9 / 8.5.7 / …) database to be used in a v9 app? Or are there better alternatives to my workflow?
