Database Updates for Dummies

Database Updates for Dummies:
  1. Run the Updater.
  2. Read the error message.
  3. Consult the documentation.
  4. Realize there is no such error message in the documentation.
  5. Read the error message again.
  6. Consult Google.
  7. Find instructions for how to do the thing that the error message says you need to do.
  8. Do something spectacularly ill-advised: follow those instructions.
  9. Re-run the Updater.
  10. Watch the update complete successfully.
  11. Promise yourself a stiff drink after work.
Go ahead. Ask me how yesterday went...
