If I manually alter the node table, with something like this "ALTER TABLE node AUTO_INCREMENT = 2056;" so the next node created in Backdrop will be 2056, will this mess things up?
I develop / work on my site cloudbrat.com offline (local WAMP) and push changes to the live site. The live site is a user signup site so much more content (nodes) are created in the live version, therefore the node ID count is much higher. However, for the content I as Admin create offline (and then online as well), I would like the node IDs to match.
I searched through all the tables looking for some "setting" like "node count" or something like that and didn't find anything so I'm just assuming that if I alter the node table auto_increment number it will just create the next node with that ID and everything will be... ok, right?
I could just make a back-up and try it out but I just don't want to make a bunch of nodes and then somewhere down the line the site explodes....
