    I started the upgrade about one hour ago. About 15 minutes into it the webpage timed out. Now when I select Software->MySQL Upgrade it says that is in step #8.

    How long will this upgrade take?

    I just check via ssh:
    mysql -V
    mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.36, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1

    I was trying to upgrade from 5.1 to 5.5

    Does this mean that the upgrade is done but cPanel reports the wrong information?

    The last step in updating MySQL is to run EasyApache so that Apache and PHP are properly compiled to work with the new MySQL Libs. You can check to see if EasyApache is still running with:

    # ps auxfwww | grep easy
    Likewise, you will want to check the following log files:

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/easy/apache/xxxxxxxxxxx.log (where xxxxx is the timestamp).  You'll want to find the latest one.
    /var/lib/mysql/HOSTNAME.err    (replace hostname with the actual hostname).
    If you see no errors in those log files and finally you will want to check that MySQL is in fact running.

    # ps auxfwww | grep mysql
    If it is then all should be just fine.
