We're migrating our server to a new updated server. The hosting company is using rsync to copy stuff over. They did the first sync of everything a few weeks ago and we've been testing things and keeping notes. Part of this testing included updating WordPress and/or Plugins on some sites.
We now need to do our final sync and have been told any newer files on the new server WILL NOT be overwritten by the older (current) files from the old server. But the databases will definitely be overwriting everything on new server with what's currently on old. So we may end up with newer files but an 'older' database (at least one from older versions of WP or plugins).
- Will this cause any potential issues with the database being out-of-sync with files it might be expecting??
We're trying to see if they can have all files on old server overwrite new server EVEN IF the timestamps are older, but have been told this isn't the way it works.
Thanks. Can't find any info on this scenario in initial searching...
