I recently installed PW 3.0.62 for a new site and also have sites running older version of PW 3.x.
Can I export the database on an older version of PW 3.x and import it to PW 3.0.62 without any issues?
(This is kind of alternative to the above for long term use - and maybe a better solution...)
On the sites I've previously built I have templates (home, basic-page, contact) and fields that I commonly use, such as business_name, phone_1. The last site I built is running PW 3.0.42. I was considering cloning this into a local site and running the upgrade module to bring it up to PW 3.0.62. From there on out when I start I new project I could just run the PW upgrade module, copy the folder to the location for the new project and duplicate the database using the new projects name.
So basically, I'll always keep a "blank slate" site that I can just run the PW upgrade on, then duplicate into a new project. This would cut down on the work and time spent having to re-create these common fields, that I use. From there, I would just add fields, templates, etc, specific for the new website project.
Is this a sound approach to speed up development?

I just posted a question about moving PW from a resting domain to a production domain, after consideration I figure I would create a new post for a second question I have.
I noticed the coming feature of client size image resizing. This will be really helpful, as I have some clients on a Satellite connection. I'm telling you, them trying to upload 15MB images, or them getting them straight on batch resizers (or Photoshop) to resize before upload is a real chore. Needless to say, Ryan has been doing an excellent job addressing this.
My question, is that I have several clients on PW 2.x thru 3.x. Is there a really good guide on steps that I need to take to update the core to take advantage of the features of new releases? Are their perils to look out for?
Yeah, after developing several sites, I feel a bit silly about asking this one, but, the docs doesn't seem to be clear in a "general" sense of upgrading the core across all versions.
Thanks everyone for your time and assistance.
I have big troubles with my DB backups and phpMyAdmin. I can't manage to import a backup.
The phpMyAdmin export settings are left to the defaults. The error message I get:
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'INSERT INTO `caches` (`name`, `data`, `expires`) VALUES ('ModulesUninstalled.in' at line 11 When I delete the complete 'cache' section there are almost for all tables the same errors. (part of the dump attached)
I had this problem before and back then (couple months ago) I think I copied almost every table individually. I thought it was specific to that DB. But I can't do a dump/import of any of my PW installations.
PHP version: 7.0.11
Anybody knows that problem? Or what to do?
phpMyAdmin SQL Dump.sql
Is it possible to add check boxes in order to select multiple backup files and delete them all at once, rather than having to click each one, then Delete?
Also it would be helpful to make the Restore process more distinct from Deleting. I must have inadvertently clicked the wrong button once and restored a backup unintentionally, wiping out a day's work. My mistake of course. I obviously wasn't paying close enough attention.
