How long does it take to auto-upgrade?

So I'm brand new to all of this and was looking around and there was an option to "auto-upgrade". I thought I went through the correct steps but I think I broke it somehow. I started the upgrade around 4:30pm CST and I still get the following message on my blog 4 hours later:

"503 Service Unavailable
System upgrade is in progress. Please reload this page in a few minutes.

Site administrators: please view the source of this page for details."

I tried to go in to the admin.php but it gives me the same message. I then tried to into Installatron on my GoDaddy cPanel portal but I don't really see anything in there that shows anything about the upgrade.

I really hope I didn't mess it up but at the same time if I did I only have to replace 1 blog.

You don't explain the steps you took to upgrade. Was it via your host or via your Site > System > Auto Upgrade.

Rather than give a spiel on this # I gather you didn't do a search of posts before you asked for help :(

a) In a healthy host probably a minute
b) Read other posts by me and others ~ start with this one maybe
https://forums.b2evolution.net/repeated-upgrade-failure
c) Read about the .maintenance.php file removal and see if that works.

I had this problem on a previous host as certain swould time out so I now manualy upgrade via filezilla even though I have a new host. I have upgraded from 6.11.3 to 6.11.4 a few days ago but didn't try the auto ~ a pity as it may have been fine on my new host.

Most people don't have a problem.

EDIT :: UPDATE

I have just used Site > Settings > Auto Upgrade on another of my sites and as mentioned above it took about a minute.

So if after reading other posts that reiterate your problem you may like to overwrite your install manually using Filezilla or the like.

Hopefully you have a copy of your previous version you can use to overwrite if you want.

Would also be usefull if you supply other info requested such as Host | php verison etc

By the way http://www.pixievacationsbymonica.com/blog/admin.php is not a host name :)

Ok sorry my host is GoDaddy. Where would I find the php version? Probably a dumb question but again I’m new to this.

I did the auto upgrade from the Site > Settings > Auto Upgrade

Suggestions from other posts: I do not have a maintenance.html file in my conf directory and my $maintenance_mode = 0; in my conf/_basic_config.php file

I've no info on GoDaddy but no doubt someone has news on them and may chip in.

Not that it is likely a problem but PHP version can be discovered,

  1. when the site is working via Site > System > Status
  2. You should be able to see from the control panel of your host and/or ask them
  3. You can make a file called, for example phpinfo.php and put it in the root of your site then navigate your browser to it. It will give you lots of php info :) Delete the file once you are done with it.

The code to make the file is

<html>
<head>
	<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
	<title>phpinfo()</title>
</head>
<body>
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
</body>
</html>

When you say you are new to this, new to what, coding or this blog engine? If it's basic coding you may have future queries the answers to which may seem daunting. I suggest you learn a little php if you don't know how to get the phpinfo etc.

The file is prefixed with maybe a 'u' you should have one prefixed with an underscore which the one with the 'u' is created from when upgrading.

So if you can read the $maintenance_mode = 0 you must have some php knowledge :)

Ok I changed umaintenance.html to umaintenance2.html and got the following message:

“ Insufficient Requirements
You cannot use b2evolution 6.11.4-stable on this server because it requires PHP version 5.6 or higher. You are running version 5.4.45”

There you go. You may have to upgrade your host plan. I had the same problem with php version and moved host. I'm surprised GoDaddy are so slack. Did you check your account via cpanel maybe to see if you can change the php version.

The may version you can run with your version of php is 6.10.5

You really ought to read the requirements before installing an application. To get working manually upload all files from 6.10.5 for now.

See various posts including

It seems you are not searching for answers, you could save yourself time and grief if you did :)

Are you sure GoDaddy is your host not just the domain registar for your domain name as I'm sure GoDaddy must have a more uptodate version of php.
