    I got 4 times the "500 Internal Server Error" when updating to 3.7 the following website:
    > http://www.hostelsmith.com

    But this one worked good at the first try, however it took around 3 minutes...
    > http://www.agenceducapdantibes.com
    Note: this one has got the French version of WordPress

    Both are located on the same server.

    Below the error message:

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator at [no address given] to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

    Have you tried deactivating all plugins before attempting to update to 3.7?

    If you don't currently have access to the dashboard, you can deactivate all plugins at once via FTP.

    I do have access to the admin.
    I have tried by de-activating all plugins (even as kismet) and tried 3 times, but it fails !
    Do you have any ideas ?

    Obviously, this is due to the PHP Timeout which is too low on the web host, whereas it worked good on previous versions of WordPress.

    This is the error from log:

    WARNING: [pool www] child 449, script '/srv/data/web/vhosts/DOMAIN_NAME/htdocs/wp-admin/update-core.php'
    (request: "POST /wp-admin/update-core.php") execution timed out
