Thanks, nice and easy upgrade as per usual.

Really in a bind

I launched the upgrader and about 184 files into it I get a message that the connection has been reset.  Now my site ( is totally down. I get this message when I go to it

Fatal error: Call to undefined function safe_ini_set() in /home/tfmpub5/public_html/sources/global2.php on line 204  

I still have the unrefreshed page that lets me hit Launch Upgrader but it does nothing.
The frame which extracts the files is independent from ocPortal and can be refreshed individually if a connection problem happens mid-upgrade. However, it sounds like you closed the upgrade window or refreshed the whole page and lost the frame.

You can probably get things running again by manually uploading sources/global.php, which contains the new safe_ini_set function.

Thanks Chris for the quick reply.  I waited a few minutes before hitting  f5 but wasn't very patient.  Anyway, for the next person waiting longer is highly recommended.  

I was lucky.  My websites control panel it has an upgrade panel which I discovered today.  It gives me notification and a mechanism for upgrading.  Interestingly, it wasn't tracking my main website but it was tracking a secondary website I had pointed to  I was able to fix the site by using that.

There are too many online users to list.
