I run a piwik installation on a shared hosting account with limited resources (it's a small website after all, with not many visitors). I notice that for the last updates, I encounter more and more problems with updating, specifically the part where it has to extract the files. So I was wondering if the updates couldn't be kept smaller by applying delta updates, where you only serve the files/database update scripts that were changed since the previous version. I know this practice is common for smartphone and tablet apps (IOS and android do it), and I think it could also be useful for websites with limited resources.

Thanks for the suggestion @ieperlingetje - now I get it why Wordpress also implemented delta updates. this may become more and more important as I see users having issues at every update. These issues will affect even more users the further away from France they are (because our build server is located in France). Ideally, all users should have the same experience when updating Piwik and delta updates would help a lot reach this goal :+1:

Upgrades timing out is a common problem, also reported: http://forum.piwik.org/read.php?3,128742

For some reason with my host, the automatic updates almost always fail due to the script timing out. Would it be possible for the script to be broken in steps where it auto refreshes the page?

How about putting this in 3.0? Heck, why not 2.17. This is a terribly annoying issue.

@Studio384 we don't have enough time / resource / money, that's why
