Hi Markus Berchtold,
what hppens if I would click on upload the whole site anyhow and the Configuration would be uploaded. If this is a risk in some way I assume it could easely happend that you upload a lot of stuff (when not reading the instructions)
You risk breaking your production website. If you upload the configurations for locally upgraded website the upgrade process will not run on the production website.
>>> When is anything changed locally in the Configuration files?
All the time, when you create custom fields for modules, make any changes in the settings, change the home page, upgrade the website, install new modules, controls, etc.
Thank you for your feedback, we will consider your input when we revise the documentation for upgrade process.
