3. What Should You Do Upgrade Successfully

3.6. How to Verify if an Upgrade Really Succeeded

The next step is to verify if the upgrade really succeed.

You need to have tests for every change that you make.

Because these are really really important I don't suggest to do tests for every little thing that you have in your application, but the tests that you need to do are for crucial things like the tools that need to run on your server.

But the most important test is not in the software. It's in the humans, the people that will access your site and you should be concerned with them too because they will do the final test.

If the technical test passed, the human test also need to test so first you do the technical tests software tools scripts that verify if that's succeeded and then you do the human testing.

Often you don't have people at reach to ask them if all went well.

So what you can do is to make sure your users can contact you. How?

You can have contact forms, email addresses that they can send you messages telling you: oh there is an issue here.

You can also have phone numbers, you can also provide a similar number to give them access to your contact via WhatsApp or Facebook messenger.

It's whatever you prefer.

Just provide as many forms of contact as possible because different users prefer to use different means of communication.
