    My installation is on windows, from that experience I would say that it is probably timing out. Have a look at your php config file and increase the timeout time and try again. Alternatively in windows you can do an update via cmd instead. I imagine that similar can be done in ubuntu

    Already tried that its set to 6000 seconds just for good measure! Still no joy though, no help or support form moodle.net either!

    Have you checked the proxy settings in Moodle? (Site admin > server > http).

    the moodle server itself is set to an exception in our smoothwall so it doesn't need proxy, plus its has its own external IP

    version 2.7

    To update do I just download a new copy and copy over the config file?

    Thanks for your responses so far i'm desperate to get this working asap

    No, an update isn't as simple as a config file change. There are core files that need changing.

    I would read this:
    Upgrading - MoodleDocs

    PLEASE backup your mysql Database and the files you currently have.

    got a little bit further with this and uploaded the standard theme which it kept wanting to remove after I deleted from FTP a while ago, now getting this error message on the plugin check

    Notice: Undefined variable: in /var/www/moodle/message/lib.php on line 25

    Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /var/www/moodle/message/lib.php on line 25

    I would delete everything and start over with your original backup.

    Warning: require_once(/eventslib.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/moodle/message/lib.php on line 25

    is very self explanatory. It's saying that it cannot find the file (eventslib.php) which is referenced on line 25.

    Are you sure it's the exact file? I know whenever I encounter errors like this it's something very blind and infront of me.

    Have you tried starting from your backup all over again?

    The backup should have been done before hand... As Moodle might have changed a few database entries.

    yes I backed up the database before upgrading, new issue now once files have been untarred and admin page wants me to upgrade to 2.7.1 I get the same behaviour as before, have to do a reboot to get back to the same process, which makes me think its something else crashing it out maybe with Ubuntu server.

    erro log shows this:


    [11-Aug-2014 12:25:01 Europe/London] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function »‚ß^u() in /var/www/moodle/lib/xmldb/xmldb_constants.php on line 32

    The page looses its CSS styling before allowing me to continue to the error
