      Description

      We are using IIS (Windows Server) and recently tried to upgrade from 1.9 to 2.2. While this presented obstacles, they were overcome by extending php timeouts to very large values to allow scripts to run for over an hour. Even then, the whole process of upgrading from 1.9.18 to 2.0.9 to 2.2.3 took about 8 hours and several restarts as there is about 200GB of data to be processed.
      It ran all night and did nothing, stalling at updating "qtype_essay". There was no error message, just page loading but with no CPU usage by the process or database. I looked in the table mdl_upgrade_log to see and it had a new "starting plugin installation" row and that is all even after 10 minutes of nothing. Debugging was turned up to show more errors.
