    How long does the upgrade take? I’ve been upgrading for the past 11/2 hours – is this normal?

  • Alas, that’s not normal. The upgrade I just finished took about 10 seconds.

    What’s the last status message you received — and who is your web hosting company?

    Here’s what I got at this point:
    Unpacking the update.

    Verifying the unpacked files…

    Installing the latest version…

    Web host is Hosting Zoom

    It depends on database attach upgrade approaches, the databases might expand during upgrade.Also, many transactions take place while the upgrade process runs, so you must make sure that the log files have room to expand to accommodate the changes that are occurring. You have to plan for growth in both the databases and the log files.

    I wonder if your host is running PHP 5?

    I ran into a similar issue with a client’s site at 1and1.com. I had to add this line to the top of their .htaccess file:
    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

    Does this mean that the host server needs to run php5 to do the upgrade?

    That is my understanding, yes.
