[resolved] WordPress does not detect new updates (7 posts)

    We are currently running WordPress version 3.1.3. I figured this was up-to-date, because going to "Updates" on the Dashboard assures me that, "You have the latest version of WordPress." I didn't realize it was out of date until Google sent us an e-mail warning about running an older version of WordPress, which may have vulnerabilities.

    Looking on our development server, we are running PHP version 5.2.12 and mySQL 5.1.43-community. That should meet the mimimum requirements for the upgrade, but WordPress isn't detecting it. Should I just disregard this fact and upgrade manually? Am I missing something?

  2. If your dashboard indicates that you're running WP 3.1.3 then you're running the latest version. Maybe you have another installation of WordPress somewhere?

    Why is Google sending you an email anyway? Are they hosting your site?

    The latest version is 3.3.1 (http://wordpress.org/download/), unless I am missing something. We are on 3.1.3.

    Google sent us an automated "new software version" notification because our site was set up with Google Webmaster Tools. It's just an automated process that warns webmasters about their server software being out of date, which is a great service imho - http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/11/new-software-version-notifications-for.html

    Yes.

    Am I missing something?

    Could you have possibly removed update warnings via a plugin?

    Ah...yes. That was it. The original developer installed a "Disable WordPress Core Update" and "Disable WordPress Plugin Updates" plugin. I didn't even think to look for something like that....thanks!
