Upgrade to CMS 6 Error while Upgrading EPiServer CMS database schema - Time out Error


Hi Guys,

  I am trying to upgrade out site from 5 to 6. It starts fine but I receive following error after 15 minutes. The error occurs while it is trying to  Upgrading EPiServer CMS database schema.

Error - Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.

Just to let you know that we have over 200,000 pages on our site. Would this be a issue of timeout as there is loads to upgrade or it does not touch the page??


Any help will be much appreciated.

You can set a time out for the database connection in 
C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\Shared\Install\episerverinstall.exe.config

add the following

<!-- Change command timeout to 10 minutes -->
<add key="commandTimeout" value="600"/>
