Pretty new to the SharePoint game. Thus far our SharePoint 2013 implementation has been RTM. I'd like to install the SP1 update. Some of the hotfixes that have been rolled up into it address issues we have (and have worked around). I've never done this before, and there is no one here at the organization that has either. I started trying to read all the MS articles but it's a nightmare -- every article I open leads to several other articles without end. I really don't know why there isn't at least one sequential article about the steps I have to accomplish and things to consider before beginning. I'm slowly working through the mateiral and putting together a plan. What I have not come across online are people's experiences of upgrading. Here are some questions for those of you that have:
How dangerous is this process?
How long, approximately, will it take?
What pitfalls should I lookout for?
Please, share your knowledge with me, I'd love to hear about it.
Our implementation is backed up every day at the data center. I'm also going to run my own backup before I begin. Working on the procedure for that now. I look forward to hearing from you guys. Thanks.
