Upgrade to 1.3.9h by copying DB tables?
I have a ZC 1.3.7 that I need to update to 1.3.9h.
My ZC 1.3.7 is heavily modded.
I had done a ZC upgrade before where I just copied certain tables to a new install of ZC. The tables I copied were the customers* tables, orders* tables, products* tables, categories* tables and the coupons* tables. This got all my products, customers and their orders in the new install. I then went through the admin to set up the rest of my settings. Then I installed the mods I wanted in the new ZC store to finish the upgrade. The reason I did it this way was because I wanted the new ZC version to be as 'clean' as possible and was worried about upgrading a lot of mods and finding myself in a mess.
In your opinion is that a reasonable method to upgrade for someone who is comfortable with working with the database tables or is it kind of a crazy way to do it?
My main question is - do the tables I noted to be copied have the same structure in 1.3.7 and 1.3.9h? I thought I would just ask first, I will actually do a visual inspection before I go for it.
Thanks for your support!
