My client's host, Bluehost, forced some WordPress upgrades on them last week, and one of the upgrades was to podpress. We got the "The podpress upgrade is not complete" message, and a popup informing us of what needed to be done, ie. correction of some of the data. However, this isn't going to work as currently set up:
In this case the max. execution time for the blog software is: 30 seconds.
The time needed to correct 10 rows in the data base: 6.21019411087 seconds
Select an increment: 10 <= 36 (The increment should be smaller than this value)
Number of rows in the data base table wp_y4xojb_podpress_stats: 370359
Number of rows which need be processed: 370349
This means that it would take 36 hours to run this update, and from the looks of it, it has to be manually initiated with each increment.
There have to be a way of updating this data directly with a mysql query. If the developer can supply the logic behind what is happening with each iteration of the updates I would be more than happy to help come up with the necessary query.
