until today I ran EE 2.8.1 because I always avoid upgrading EE.
Now again I tried to upgrade to the newest 2.10.x. I have about 15 Modules installed (mostly commercial), which I had to update. I downloaded EE 2.10. I made backups. I renamed folders. I set file permissions. And then, finally, running the update-wizard, I was told that the PHP-version on my server is just 5.3.7.x, 5.3.10... would be required, please contact your hosting provider. Ok. Turning everything back. On Monday I am going to contact my provider.
Ok - the updating-instructions are good and detailed. Taking backups makes sense. File permissions have to be set. I could have checked the required PHP-version before
But always when upgrading it is required to make backups from everything, setting file-permission, renaming files, changing index.php and admin.php … This drives me crazy. Really.
Now my question is this: Is updating EE a pain in the '*$/%§ or am I just too sensible?
