Keep getting a 500 server error on step 10 of the v1.2 upgrade process. any clues what this can be?
did you read this :
Why on earth is this stuff not posted in a readme?
i disabled the forum watch addon and dropped the table before upgrading.
how does this CLI thing work?
Can you upgrade via "Cli" upgrader ?
Have you ssh access ?
Nope not that i know of... is that the only way?
Sounds like the best way to go.
How many posts does your forum have?
You dont believe this!!!!!!
500 with chrome
500 with firefox
500 with opera
and out of desperation tried freaking Internet Explorer and completed it in notime!
For one time only
IE SAVED THE DAY
It would have worked in the other browsers. If I remember correctly (and this post by Mike seems to confirm my memory: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/upgrade-stuck-at-1-2-alpha-step-10.56023/#post-597218) that if you continue the process it attempts to or picks the upgrade up where it left off.
Yeah, what just happened was that the query finally finished in MySQL so it would've run instantly the next time. There's not a lot we can do about this on the web side unfortunately - for example, with a 500 error, it's your web server just killing the process. The query is still running in the background, but since your web server killed the process, you see an error. It's a single long query so there's nothing that can be done to split it up.
On a side note, with a 1.6 million post forum, you really will want SSH "just in case". It allows you to do various things that can't be done easily via the web (DB backups being a good example).
