I tried several times to upgrade and gave up for now. I was trying to do this via admin. The issue may be with a message that said my php memory limit was set to 768 mb. But, my host, and my php.info file show that I did set that to 2 gb, so I'm confused on this one. I will likely try to upgrade via command line soon.
That said, before I do that I want to run another database backup. It keeps giving me the error "Area Code is already set". Any clue why?
Thanks in advance.
