Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » How to know when database update is finished???

    (@dave8441)


    After I installed the latest WooCommerce update, I was prompted to update the database, so I did. After clicking the update button, the message said “WooCommerce is updating the database in the background. The database update process may take a little while, so please be patient.” OK, so how am I supposed to know when the update is finished? In the past, the message used to contain a link to update the database immediately. Why was that option removed? I want to run WP-Optimize and then make a new database backup, but cannot without knowing whether the update is complete or not. Please provide a solution.

    When the message is gone.

    Large updates cannot work instantly or they would by default.

    There is a link to view progress. Go to Tools > Scheduled Actions and view pending events.

    Perfect, thanks for the explanation.

    hello,

    I have update woocommerce 3.5.7 to 3.6.2 but database uodate notification not showing and Tools > Scheduled Actions is not showing running hook .how can i update database. also I could do this by adding wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings&do_update_woocommerce=1 to site URL. Currently adding this takes me to an error page saying The link you followed has expired.
