  • Connect to Database - Hangs

    I was running the upgrade script today and it seems to hang on step 2 when it tries to connect to the database. I tried upgrading before and it seemed to hang as well. Is it possible that the database crashed? Is there a command to reboot it? What can I do?

    I was upgrading from Beta 7 to Gamma.

    Did you edit the config file?

      Yes. I basically just cut and pasted the info from the old config file.

        Is it possible that the first attempt corrupted the database? I just rebooted my server which didn't help.

          Possible. At what step did it hang? Did you make a backup of the database prior to upgrading?
