I have held off from upgrading after managing to lose all my site data and functionality after the last time!
But I am biting the bullet and about to upgrade to 2.8.4
My question is, is it possible to upgrade automatically even though I have an older version? I am really scared about getting it wrong and breaking my site again!
I have backed up my database in phpmyadmin just now and will copy my files onto my desktop beforehand.
