Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » WC 3.4 Database Update Complete – and keeps on running!

  • Resolved FUNNEL24


    So I upgraded to 3.4 and the database update took about 6 hours to complete today, during which time we had a bunch of problems. No big deal, I thought, since 45 minutes ago it said, “WooCommerce data update complete…”

    But then a few minutes later everything bogged down again. Memory usage spiked. So I check the wc_db_updates-xxx.log and see it updating again with this every 5 minutes or so:

    2018-05-24T18:30:58+00:00 INFO Running wc_update_340_states callback

    Any help on how I can force it to stop would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi there,

    Looking at the code for wc_update_340_states, it seems that this is the first function to run after the updater is initiated with the code available at:

    I’m wondering whether your WooCommerce Database version isn’t getting set, which in turn, keeps firing the update sequence. To check for that, would you mind sending through a copy of your system status report (as found under WooCommerce > System Status)

    Thank you for the response! I really do appreciate the help on this one.

    Since my first post, the host tried a couple things.

    First, he disabled memcached citing that it was looping through the update queries endlessly. I don’t know about that one.

    Then he tried disabling WP Cron and setting it to run manually every 30 mins via cPanel. The result is the site runs great for about 15 minutes and then bogs down to where loading the Orders or processing a transaction becomes a problem. As expected, I’m seeing wc_update_340_states in the logs every half hour now.

    Looks like this may be timing out due to a large postmeta table.

    Make this change:

    This will skip the update unless it’s ran using WP CLI manually.

    Mike, thank you!

    I actually got desperate and commented out the contents of that function so it would just finish. I’ve updated my file with this now – and it looks like it will be included in 3.4.1 so that’d be great.

    Thanks again,
