    For instance, I need to upgrade PHP 7.3.16 to 7.3.25. Is there a WPI "transaction" of sorts so that pending website requests will not be fulfilled by a mixture of 7.3.16 and 7.3.25 code? Or do I need to take the website offline first?

    Usually it’s not necessary, I suggest you try first, if you get problems, you can come to discuss.

    Best regards,

    Hi Sam. It did not work. I went ahead and set the (REDCap) website to offline mode - it still didn't work. It turns out that perhaps I need to disable a scheduled task called "REDCap Cron Job".

    Waiting for another outage timeslot to try that.

    It turns out that IIS server had to be stopped before I could get a clean PHP upgrade.
