Curt, I tried to simulate your restore situation.  I took a Moodle 2.3 backup, 17MB, and tried restoring it into my low-end hosted server version of Moodle 2.4.  My browser showed activity for more than 30 minutes.  Never an error message, or any other message.  I eventually "Canceled" this, but then noticed that the course was actually installed?

You might try more experimenting.  I was not sure if your 150+MB backup included user data, or if it was all course materials.  If it contains user data, you might first try resetting this course, do the backup, see if it is any smaller, and then restore it.   If you want to preserve user data, create a new course in your Moodle 2.2 from your Moodle 2.2. backup, get rid of user data, backup the "new" course, and see if it restores.  You might also try getting rid of any big video files in the "new" copy, back it up, see if it is smaller in size, and then restore it.

Rick,

I am in the process of testing the restoration of a smaller course. 15 MB.  It seems to be working.  Perhaps this will help to zero in on the actual problem, as, if this upgrade works, it seems to suggest that simply the size of the course being restored is the problem.

Yes, maybe size is the issue on a certain kind of server.  However, if one could focus in on the exact problem, and then replicate this on another system, it might really be a bug.  If so, this should go into the Moodle Tracker system.  So far, we don't have enough information to call it a bug.

My moodle home page still lists the course as "Course restoration in progress."  I am going to assume that it is "hung" as for 15MB 8 hours should be enough time for a restoration.
