    improve handling of upgrades and updates, PLEASE

    Sorry I ghosted you guys while you answered to my call. I simply missed the notifications. You may notice I am short of time. I run a forum and a wordpress site next to my fulltime job and being a father. And THIS is also the problem I wanted to outline: While it is easy for me to maintain (aka...

    improve handling of upgrades and updates, PLEASE

    Sorry. I feel that you need to focus more on the needs of your customers: We forum-admins are your customers. It seems to me that you focus too much on user-experience - with the "user" being the forum-user. But I see too little improvement happening for the ones that pay your bills: us. e.g...

    XF 2.1 How to interrupt upgrade? Help, please.

    I was afraid you'd say that. I run a 6gig forum, how am I supposed to do a quick backup? So I rely on the backup function of my hoster. and that snapshot is 20 hours old. My community will be furious :(

    XF 2.1 How to interrupt upgrade? Help, please.

    just realized that while I start the upgrade again and again in the lower right corner it already says "v2.1.11" - now I am confused? ACP and forum are still closed

    XF 2.1 How to interrupt upgrade? Help, please.

    Ah, after your post I rechecked and saw it now wants me to upgrade to 2.1.11 again - I already did that successfully earlier tonight. It lead to "oops we ran into some problems please try again" at first, but in the scond run worked OK. But now when I try to do that again it always runs into...

    XF 2.1 How to interrupt upgrade? Help, please.

    I already restored a backup of the complete /forum-directory so it must be something in the database :/
