Thanks, Gaetano--especially for the tip on how to "warm up" the caches!

Great checklist. Hands up who wishes that making an update were simpler? Of course, a lot can be scripted, BUT, I would request that some serious thought is put into making updating the following easier:

  1. roles & policies
  2. workflows


  3. sections


  4. object states definitions

If there was an option for packaging up content classes and any associated roles & policies, that would make life so much easier!

Interesting checklist. For "[optional] put the public website offline" part, I wrote an article almost 3 years ago with a way to do that in the Apache configuration, there's also alternatives ways of doing the same things in the comments.

Followed this checklist yesterday, everything went smooth without any hickups. Had a backup ready just in case, but not needed. Thanks for the writeup, was helpfull.

Nice checklist... Here are two little details also worth mentioning:

  • regenerate static cache before putting the site online (bin/php/makestaticcache.php)
  • test the upgraded site on the server before putting it online :)

Nothing is impossible. Not if you can imagine it!
