update.php stalls at "Deleting old default messages"
Closed, InvalidPublic


On my production systems, updating from 1.8.2 to 1.9.2 stalls at
"Deleting old default messages..."
Sure hope nothing important was supposed to happen after that.
Happens each time I run the script, and also on too.

Sit back and have a cup of tea.

[On a more serious note, Simetrical added a warning that the operation can take
some time.]

Your long and my long might differ. Add progress indicators.
