Updating plugins results in maintance mode 'lockout' and no update! (5 posts)

    OK so I am on 3.4.2 using a modified default theme (tweaked colors changed layout etc)

    I am experiencing a problem very similar to this thread


    difference, it doesn't do anything, it enables maintainance mode and then hangs pretty much with the little 'spinning icon' going and going in circles.

    I end up throwing my hands in the air a minute later saying the hell with it logging into FTP and deleting the .maintainance file.

    this is pretty unnerving, especially with the 3.5 update banner looming... do i really want to do THAT big of an update with it not even successfully completing little plugins... um.... NO.

    Posting works fine, all other functions seem to work fine, but when I get to updating anything, forget it.

    PHP is - PHP 5.3.19

    why not delete and upload new version of plugin via ftp and then enable via dashboard?
    manual upgrade of WP is also easy.. replace everything except wp-content,wp-config.php and htaccess..
    btw.. if your plugin is giving you trouble, it can create issues while WP upgrade..

    I'd go ahead and do that shadez but it still wont solve the underlying problem. Thats like giving a sick dog medicine for a liver condition, the liver condition is still there, the medication simply hides the symptoms.

    as for upgrading 10 plugins manually, pain. especially when they tie into the SQL table

    upgrading WP manually, mucking with MYSQL tables... ehhhhh, makes me uneasy.

    true that.
    tried disabling all plugins, and enable them one-by-one, try the update, and identify which one is creating the problem, if any?
