If anything fails however, it can be somewhat messy to

Especially for novice users.
That's a good illustration of why it's important for users to acquire system
administration skills, or to have reliable technical support available.
The basic options never change: one either learns to do it independently, or
arranges for someone else to help (and often the latter option involves paid
support if one doesn't have a technical support department, friend, family
member or user group willing to provide the assistance).
I personally prefer to be independent in these matters - the time spent
learning is fun and pays for itself.
