    My original comment….
    Since upgrading to WP 5 I am now running the option to “Switch to recommended php version” has been running for two hours and is only at 37 %. the last time I ran it BEFORe WP5 it only took about 20 minutes.
    WHATS WRONG? ANDI cant stop the process either

    Follow up comment:
    Thank You very much Hristo for looking in to my problem.
    YES, this is a process that someone would only do on a very rare occaision and perhaps should be warned of the process time involved (previuos versions took about 10 – 15 minutes)
    Now that WP is up to V 5 and PHP is beyond V 7 its just so much more for the process to evaluate.
    and your thoughts of including a “pause/resume” switch are great too.
    Since our site is so far “behind” just now I’ll check each element for its compatibilty with WP version and PHP version in the PLUGINS list, that info should be there as time goes by.
    Until then I will happily use SG Optimizer for the help it can give us but will not try the evaluator.
    Thanks Again for your help.

    I am sorry for the negative experience you’ve had with our plugin.

    Let me explain, if you’ve refreshed the page, that kills our default status update mechanism and we fall back to cron to update the status. So, if you refresh the page once, you can refresh it again in few minutes to get the status update faster. Alternatively, if there’s something blocking our requests like a security plugin, there might be some issue refreshing the status.

    The process itself is designed to be slower but not to fail. In addition, we presume that’s something that you don’t do on a daily basis on your site and it’s ok to take longer. The time depends on the number of plugins you have activated on yours ite and their size.

    If you want, you can give me your URL and I can look in to it and hopefully we can change that one star into something better 🙂

    after writing you yesterday I DEactivated SGOptimizer plugin on our site http://www.bmwmoc.org.
    now about 20 hours later I just REactivated it. and it still shows 37%, exactly where I left it yesterday.
    while the plugin was DEactivated our site seemed to run as usual (I was afraid the LOADof the Evaluator might slow the site – but we dont get a lot of traffic anyway).
    so visit the site if you wish.
    I may just leave SG Optimizer DEactivted and manually try PHP7 to see what will happen

    Nice site, car fan here too 🙂 Deactivating and reactivating the plugin actually caused the stall. It was slow but moving which is ok. However, that’s a valid case scenario and we will patch it in the next version. Adding a Pause / Resume button is a great idea too.

    Meanwhile, I’ve run a compatibility check through WP-CLI and it run for just 10 minutes. Unfortunatelly, you have too many incompatible plugins, I think that’s why it took so long. Since it contains personal information, I didn’t want to post it here so I created a text file in your home folder named PHP-Compatibility-Report.txt. You will find all the necessary information in it. Hope I’ve helped enough for you to update the one star rating 🙂
