Upgrade problem 1.0.2 to 1.2
We’ve been using bbpress almost since the beginning, and we currently have a quite big forum.
So upgrading was not something we did frequently, but a recent necessary php and mysql upgrade forced us to upgrade our wordpress and bbpress. WordPress upgrade went ok, but bbpress was a problem since we just learned it moved from being a standalone version to a plugin version.
Since the problem we had was the the recent php and mysql brought some error like these:
`Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/ifans/public_html/foro/bb-settings.php on line 186
Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/ifans/public_html/foro/bb-includes/backpress/functions.wp-object-cache.php on line 108

Import from 1.0.2 (our latest forum version) to latest bbpress was a nightmare (duplicated forums, topics, posts. Stalled conversions and so on). So looking for advice here ate bbpress forums found that it could be easier if I upgraded first from 1.0.2 to 1.2. I downloaded the legacy version, the backpress files (whatever they were) and the “pomo” folder (also don’t know what it is).
We decided to try to upgrade to 1.2 as suggested. Everything went fine, uploaded files helped, the errors didn’t show in this version, next step was going to the admin panel and upgrade the database, clicked the “upgrade database” button and then another error.
`Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: “Operation timed out”
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

I can’t tell what’s happening, I’ve tried to increase the maximum execution time, the php memory, nothing worked so far.
What can I do? how can I upgrade the database without this timeout error? is it possible to do it through shell? Is a setting I need to move in my server?
