  • 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?
