Converting 32 Bit INT to 64 Bit MySQL BIGINT Integer data types
Anything I should know before simply converting all the form types?

There are a few limitations that I can see hitting by using the 32 bit INT field type in MySQL including the epoch issue so my question is rather simple: should I expect any potential problems in my production environment if I just go through all my database tables and convert the types from INT to BIGINT?
