Joomla won't update

Post by mto213 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 3:44 pm

Hi, I'm having trouble updating Joomla to version 2.5.7. My Joomla control panel tells me that I should update to this version, but when I try it gets stuck on the loading and the completion bar does not make any progress. Here's a picture.

Use the method in viewtopic.php?f=710&t=956702 but use the files from a fresh 2.5.7 to update (step #2, 5)
