How to check current plugin installation status?

If I upgrade/install many plugins in the same time, configure pop-up ("InstallExtensions/add is working") window seems to be not responding.

And then... I don't know what to do, how many plugins are installed? Can I close this window? Is there any other place to check configure status?


When I close this window, I might lost configuration changes. I check both:


log files, but I can't see any logs from current day.

Is it possible to run plugins upgrade from command line (I guess that I will see status )?

The extension installer can take a very long time to run, especially if is not being responsive, or if you are installing really large extensions, like FamFamFamContrib. If the server times out, or you close the window before the upgrade has completed, you can leave your installation in an incomplete status.

The reason we don't have an "upgrade all" button is that some of the comments below each extension need review, "Do not install this extension on x.x.x." for example.

You can install extensions from the CLI by using tools/extensions_installer. ...

tools/extension_installer SomeExtension install
