Encounter on:
Upgrading... 1.2.0 Alpha, Step 5
Upgrading... 1.2.0 Alpha, Step 6
Now stack on Upgrading... 1.2.0 Alpha, Step 10
Almost 2 hours of 500 Internal Server Error/ Request Timeout Page, still not yet done.

How can I prevent this on happening under Shared Hosting?
Last time I upgrade my test forum using beta 3 and 4, didn't encounter this.

Have your host increase your resources. We haven't had anyone have issues with any upgrades beyond 2nd day of beta release.

Looks like I will be transferring into your host :)
Last 3 beta release I didn't encounter this problem only in Beta 5

After a very long period of timeout, now Upgrade page ask for admin login.
After I login, I receive this message.

Do you have a cache enabled like APC or Memcache?

You need to contact your host about this. An ISE error is something to do with your web server. I have seen overly restrictive server modules like mod_evasive generate this error during intensive operations like cache rebuilds.

1.2a step 10 alters xf_conversation_master and xf_conversation_user. 1.2a step 11 alters xf_post. If those tables are very large you might be looking at a timeout of some sort.

You can also try the CLI upgrader if you have shell access to your server:

library/XenForo/Install/run-upgrade.php

So next time I do a fresh upgrade, disabling file cache first will help eliminate this error?

The cause is unknown. For ISE errors you need to contact your host. Then we can know the cause and fix. Until then we are just making educated guesses.

I don't see why a file cache would cause this.

I commented out file cache on libarary/config.php
Then restart Upgrade from 1.1.5, I only got two timeouts.
It really help :)

I am getting the same at step 10. My site is pretty big so I am not surprised that its due to large tables.

I kept reloading the upgrade process and it seems done now. But I am not confident that it all went well.
