Hi umbracians! Been a while for me. The business have finally decided to do a full rework of a big website that we have on U8. I was wondering whether there are any known issues when upgrading an existing website in 8 up to the latest version. Of course I would follow the update guidelines on umbracos website and I am fully aware of the shift from c# to dotnet core. I have previously upgraded a website from 8 to 9 successfully. My concern mostly lies around whether or not there are any database related changes that may affect the content etc. Has anyone tried to do anything similar?
