Is there a way to override the connection timeout when upgrading site from CMS 6 R2 to 7?


I'm having a problem upgrading a site from CMS 6 R2 to 7. I'm getting a wait timeout error while upgrading using the Deployment Center. My problem is similar to this one

As much as I don't want to resort to manual upgrade, is there a way to override the connection timeout?

Thanks in advance for any help.

First, Make shore you do not have anything else running against the site you upgrade. If you still get it, start management studio and activity monitor to see who is accessing the database

No one's accessing the db.

I would try to run the script that does the hanging manually to see if you can get more information on what happens.

C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\7.0.586.1\Upgrade\Database\sql\0007_0000_0041_0000to0007_000‌​0_0147_0000.sql

I restarted the site then refreshed the site in DC and it worked now. Looks like the settings are cached in DC.
