XF 1.4 How long does it take to upgrade from 1.2.5 to 1.4.3

I am trying to upgrade from 1.2.5 to 1.4.3 and would like to know aprox. how much it takes.

At this moment I am seeing a message on my screen saying "Upgrading... 1.3.0 Alpha, Step 18 Loading... but nothing happens since last 8 minutes now.

Is it normal?

Thank you!

It is all dependent on how large your forum is, and what changes were made. If you have a larger forum, patience will be required when there are changes to the post table and such. :)

Step 18 involves an alter to the thread table and step 19 the post table.

It should complete the step(s) eventually.

I would note that with the forum your size, it should have recommended the CLI upgrade. In the web upgrade, with a long alter, it's possible the browser may have timed out and you'll need to refresh. The CLI upgrade doesn't have that limit.
