I am a financial analyst in London who uses VBA/MS-Access/MS-Excel and sometimes php to build financial models and portfolio valuation, trading and risk management tools. I also design ordinary websites too from time-to-time where I use html, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery and WordPress.

comment Problem updating from 3.6 to 3.7
Turns out it was some sort of server issue. I increased the execution timeout on my vhost's nginx config file and it fixed it. The strange thing is is that when it worked the update completed almost instantly. It didn't take any where near even the original timeout limit.

Interesting. I will do some more tests tonight. Also will try the php-fpm slow log which should give info on slow-running scripts. My server should also easily handle things like WP updates in seconds. Comments work fine for me.

Thanks, yes I do have a dev environment where I test all updates. My dev environment updated fine however, unlike the live server. I also have vaultpress backups so I can always restore to an earlier image if something goes wrong.

OK I will investigate logs when I get the opportunity. "This isn't really an option..." is more "I'd very much like to avoid..."
