hitcounter should not do destructive db updates
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Its probably better if hit counters didn't do the destructive db updates (As in, it should move the data to the new table, but probably not delete the old data). Or at least provide the option for that

Upgrading is a lot less scary when you know that your db is not going to be screwed if something bad happens, and you can always rollback to the previous version.

@Bawolff can you have a look at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/260173/ ? It is not fully ready yet (it does not fix T120216 yet), but it should migrate existing 1.24 data (it can even run on 1.24).
