    Ravi, it depends.

    If the changes you have made are code only, then you dont really have to update the database, just the application files. but if you made changes to content (the stuff that sits in the database) then you will have to update the database. not sure if you can update just a part of the database. i usually do the whole thing since it does not take that long.

    Thanks for reply, can you tell me what is the general size of the database because in my case the size of it around 18-19 mb and upload such file with low up link takes time for every upload.

    Ravi,

    Just created a brand-new project with Sitefinity 4.4 just for you, and the size on a new database is 12.06 MB. So it looks like your has some data in it. I know what you mean about uploading stuff. I must says, Gabe Sumner did a useful video in which he transfers the database data from his development PC to the Arvixe's server without much trouble. I think he used the Export Data functionality if I am not mistaken. Check it out, because that might save you some time, since it is only transferring the data rather than all the other static components of your database. Always, make sure you have backups before attempting anything like that.
