There are small changes in the database tables which are not structural , but they are performed during the upgrade from Nolics. You do not have to manually made any changed to the database. The websites you have should be upgraded in dev environment - files merging and database upgrade. Then you need to upload the upgraded project ( all files and folders ) to the production server. Afterwords, restore a backup copy of the upgraded database
to the production server and run the project.
I ask this because I need to know if we should do a production DB backup and restore to the dev environment first. If no DB changes are made then we only need to upgrade the application files and copy them across or is that not the case?
This is not recommended, because it something goes wrong you will corrupt the production database. Upgraded are performed only in dev environment.
