Upgrade network: php timeout in wp-admin/network/upgrade.php

Reported by: podpirate Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.6.1
Component: Networks and Sites Keywords: reporter-feedback
Focuses: multisite Cc:



  • Pretty slow server running php 5.5 (As a result calling wp-admin/upgrade?step=upgrade_db might take several seconds in average.)
  • PHP max_execution_time is 30 seconds. Value can't be changed by scripts.
  • WP-Multisite with about 400 blogs.


  • Call wp-admin/network/upgrade.php?action=upgrade
  • Result: Network Upgrade gets stuck at some point, terminating with http error 500

@podpirate Thanks for the ticket. Can you tell us which version of WordPress you're using and if you have any plugins installed? If so, would you mind telling which plugins?

Going to close this out due to lack of reporter feedback. @podpirate if you can still reproduce this issue on the current version of WordPress, please reopen with more details.
