Tried to update WP, got timed out (had to increase max_execution_time) but now it said there was another update in progress. I didn’t want to wait 15 minutes, so i deleted the core_updater.lock row in the options table for that database. (all this is on a xampp stack) Update worked fine.
My question is, is deleting this table row like deleting the .maintenance file? Will it regenerate? What if i decide I want this safety feature back? Can I re-add this option?
Thanks sincerely for any suggestions or info. It’s not a pressing concern but I am just curious and like to learn.
