    Upgrading of Microsoft SQL 2005 Express

    I have never upgraded SQL 2005 express edition before thats why a bit worried. What is the safest way to upgrade it to Service Pack 1? Secondly the management console upgrade. Which to upgrade first the SQL or the SQL Express Management console?

    Problems with SQL upgrades are rare - backup your databases then run the service pack exe.

    It would make sense to upgrade the management console first as any fixes to it would have been tested against an older database version.
