This is very annoying.

I am having a terrible time with the update from 3.1.10 to 3.2.0

I had the time out error when trying to evaluation the files. So i deleted the shop/install_config.php file and managed to get past that stage. I then tried to proceed to the next step...updating the database and the same thing happened again.

I have my execution timeout set to 250s.

Why doesn't this work? My error says that this processes has also timed out!!!

Thanks for any advice

I always did the auto update via FTP as it was the easiest and I didn't want to have to redo any little tweaks in code in case something got reset. Either way, it always worked for me.

Then I tried updating to 3.2 and got the error mentioned and found this thread. It didn't help much as I didn't want to do a manual method, but I was able to delete the file needed to start the process again.

This time I chose the other auto update method, can't remember now what it said, and chose zip for the file type, though I don't think that matters.

This time it worked flawlessly and I am on 3.2 on my board.
This is what worked for me, above in bold.

Ok, thanks both !

It seems to be the store/install_config.php file. I deleted it and I've accomplished the update proccess (but manually this time... don't know why the automatic way failed since my server time_execution is big enough).

Well, again... thank you ! 😄
Thank you. I had a somewhat similar problem and this solved it for me.
