Thanks, @stephenwaite. But again, if the 5.0.0 version table were to have additional fields that are required by the software then dropping a table and recreating it with only the fields that the 4.1.0 version needs would not work. I would get an error in the software.
Now, I am not saying this is going to happen or is even the case. However, in trying to cover all contingencies, the Drop/Create table commands stood out as a BIG red flag to me. I did not see any posts that anyone had an issue with this but I am making a big version jump here. So, I thought I would ask before I got too far down this road. I can compare the schema of the tables in 5.0.0 to the schema of the tables in 4.1.0 prior to importing the sqldump to see what if any ramifications there would be to allowing the Drop/Create Table commands to execute.
