    Unanswered: Updating a production database with back up of development database

    Can someone provide a step by step tutorial for this? I'd like to safely update a database that is used for a website without much or any downtime.

    Develop on your develop box.
    Script the changes, and apply the script to your test box.
    Test, test, test.
    Re-test.
    Test again.
    Apply the script to your production box.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
