HI, I am looking to apply the latest patch: https://invisioncommunity.com/release-notes/

I haven't updated this before, so just wanted to ask if there is anything I need to lok out for or do manually before pushing the 'Upgrade Now' button.


Thanks in advance

My only suggestion is to make first a backup of your database and forum folders/files as well, before you upgrade your forum. (Regardless of the upgrade method btw)

If you are self-hosted, we recommend taking a backup before applying upgrades as mentioned by @Miss_B.

It is often a good idea to upgrade a test installation first to ensure there are no compatibility problems before upgrading your live site. That said, as a general rule upgrading between minor point releases (i.e. 4.5.2 to 4.5.4) should not cause you any issues, while upgrading major point releases (i.e. 4.5.x to 4.6.0) should be treated with extra caution due to a higher likelihood that third party customizations such as plugins, applications and themes will no longer be compatible.
