Update stalls on Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.8.zip (4 posts)

    Doing a 2.7.1 to 2.8 update.

    I'm hosted on 1and1 and I just did the update to the plugins a minute before successfully. I didn't see 1and1 listed in the hosts that have been verified but thought the Automatic upgrade should work since the plugins did.

    Has anyone experienced the stalled download for the auto update before? Any ideas?

    There are so many little things that could go wrong, it would be tough to figure out exactly what the cause was.

    The easiest solution would be to download 2.8 and manually upgrade it. Just make sure you have your database and files backed up!

    Yeah I will try that next. I had a full backup already and was hoping to see the auto update in action. Guess it is not ready for primetime reading the various posts in the forums. Thanks for the input.

    I'm also on 1and1 and have the same issue. It attempts to download the .zip but it remains a 0 Byte file and doesn't progress.
