User Story

Background updates currently trigger with an external admin-ajax.php request on the same server, but we found that some servers disable admin-ajax.php to harden security.

Because of this, site admins are stuck and unable to update the Database without asking their web host to disable admin-ajax.php security rules.

We do not want plugin users to compromise security for DB upgrade, so we need a fallback to account for servers preventing external calls to admin-ajax.php.
