I can understand your unwillingness to do the tedious task of backing up regularly, but before doing an upgrade that can crash your site, I think it's better to be safe than sorry.

And you can actually use crontabs to automatically backup your servers. I'm not an expert on that, but if you do a search, you'll likely find a tutorial.
