Been trying to upgrade our current instance from 1.7 to "stable" via the Connect Manager and after 3 hours received this error in the console:
I received this error in an earlier attempt today to upgrade but it flew past that step and popped up again later in the process. The settings I'm using in the upgrade screen are:
Ftp beta alpha No
|Magento Connect Channel Protocol:||Http|
|Magento Version Stability:||stable|
|Use Custom Permissions:||Yes|
|Deployment Type:||Local Filesystem|
Arvixe is my webhost and 1.7 has been running very smoothly for 2 years. Any thoughts? Kinda sucks to have it happen 3 hours into the process.
The "Check permissions" message may point to a file permissions issue which can happen if the file permissions are not set correctly.
The usual file permissions for a shared hosting server is 644 for files and 755 for directories but as each server can be setup differently, you may need to consult with your hosting provider on the ideal file permissions in your environment.
