Notes on upgrading by blog's Heroku database plan. Heroku discontinued the “Basic” PostgreSQL plan I’ve been using for my blog, so I just upgraded to the new “essential-0” tier. Here are my notes as a GitHub issue—it was very straightforward, and I’m really only linking to it now to test that writes to the new database work correctly.

I try to create an issue like this any time I do even a minor ops task, mainly so I have somewhere to drop screenshots of any web UI interactions for future reference.
