I have 41 sites connected running on a subdomain of my server. The server is pretty beefy (16GB RAM, 4 processors) and idles through most of the day. Even when running updates, it rarely spikes over 200% (full power, half the processors).
What happens, every single time I run updates, is that I have a number of sites that fail the updates and the .maintenance file is left in place, so the sites never come back. We looked at this maybe a year ago and I finally just gave up because it felt like it’s my server, but now it’s annoying enough that it has made it to the top of my list again.
Here’s my system report. Hopefully someone has some idea what I can do to fix this. It’s been making me pull my hair out for a long time now.
CURL execution time is set to something like 300 seconds. There was a thread that mentioned that recently, so I updated that, but it didn’t help. Oh, and I have also tried setting all the advanced settings to default, but that didn’t help either. Just took a lot longer to run through every time I clicked on any buttons.
