Upgrade Stalls On Compressing Backup File


I am trying to run an upgrade from 4.3.3.SP1 to 4.3.4. Each time I do the upgrade stalls when trying to compress the backup file. I've waited over an hour which seems like plenty of time. I've gzipped the server in times faster than that.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to why the upgrade stalls at this point and what I can do about it? I do know that my server's timeout is set to 30 seconds for a script and I cannot increase this but I would expect a timeout error or something.


Did you try this post?


I did see that post but as I mentioned, I cannot change the timeout, the reason being that I am on a shared server.

What about changing the zip to false as the post mentions?
