Support » Installing WordPress » Upgrade 2.5 to 2.5.1 but 2.5 remains

  • Hi,

    I made an upgrade from my 2.5 to 2.5.1 version but in the admin panel keeps showing “please upgrade to 2.5.1”

    I read some forum topics dicussing about the same problem. I followed also the recommendation of MichaelH to read Steps 7 and 8 in Upgrading_WordPress_Extended, but the version number doesn’t change.

    The wp_options db entry shows this:
    O:8:"stdClass":5:{s:12:"last_checked";i:1209199247;s:15:"version_checked";s:3:"2.5";s:8:"response";s:7:"upgrade";s:3:"url";s:30:"http://wordpress.org/download/";s:7:"current";s:5:"2.5.1";}

    And I didn’t found any error message in my logfile.

    Any further idea?

    Links the latest.zip to the right version?

  • We have the same problem with both latest.zip and latest.tar.gz.

    Also, version.php says:

    $wp_version = ‘2.5.1’;
    $wp_db_version = 7796;

    but the warning messages remain on the dashboard.

    In our case the problem turned out to be the hack described here:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/168964?replies=30

    ok, I checked out this before and made all that find stuff, but nothing.
    I checked my /tmp dir nothing.
    Neither corrupted images nor infected files.
    Also I didn’t found any db entries as described.

    But I updated my local installation and everything works fine.

    I’m totally lost!

    What have you done to solve the problem?

    now it works.
    I made a complete new installation.

    But it seems that I got an old latest.zip before because first I made a new installation with latest.zip, and same phenomena.
    After that I got a latest.zip twice, installed it and WP asked me for an update !
    AND this update worked successfully !

    I would propose that the WP-maitainers supply a new download file with a version number.

    I agree. Let’s have an “About WordPress” or some simple indicator of the Version installed. Even though the WordPress version zip files are clearly marked with the version number, I am finding no obvious way to determine the versions of my prior installs. It should be a simple line of code to add. The version # a the bottom of the Dashboard page seems to be something broadcast by WordPress and not a true indication of the version you are running. I am correct in this?

    No you are not. If you were, I would have been blowing smoke out my ass when I responded to your other post, wouldn’t I have been?

    The WordPress version you see in the footer of your wp-admin panel is a result of what is stored inside wp-includes/version.php

    There are exceptions to this rule:

    1. security upgrades where you might upgrade 1 or 2 files, and consequently that file is NOT changed.

    2. Incomplete upgrades where that file is NOT changed.

    3. There is a recent hack which may or may not change the version thats displayed.

    And honestly, if you are so fricken dense that you cant figure out what version of WP that you are using, you shouldnt be using it. Youre a liability to the I’net.

    I mean cmon, youve been regged on these forums for three years — THIS ought to be behind you by now.

    Thanks for the info, but not the attitude.

    My version.php says:

    <?php
    // This holds the version number in a separate file so we can bump it without cluttering the SVN
    $wp_version = ‘2.1.3’;
    $wp_db_version = 4773;
    ?>

    So, evidently there is something screwed up with the way my footer reads, or fails to read this.

    IMO WordPress is nice for free, but it is a liability as well. I have better things to do with the Internet than to struggle with half baked tools that are the producet of massive groupware. Once again, tempted to move on to a better blogging tool such as Typepad.

    I will make one change to what I said above.

    Since Im not willing to go through the code and actually look.. the version in the footer might be the db_version.

    Either way, you are still incorrect,

    So, why didn’t you state the same answer the first time I asked the question, genius?

    Here’s the door.

    You really should read.

    lets put some common sense to the test. Your version.php reads that you are using a version thats .. oh, what 1 year old? year-1/2 maybe?

    Your footer reads something else.

    what did I write in #3 above?

    hmm.. think you might be hacked? It wouldnt be a surprise to anyone if your version.php is an accurate reflection of your codebase.

    Hey folks – I’m new to the forum but have been around WP for a while. I have the problem as explained above. I’ve done multiple svn check outs of 2.5.1 and done a manual upgrade, but the problem of being prompted on the dashboard still persists.

    This solution is unclear to me:

    But it seems that I got an old latest.zip before because first I made a new installation with latest.zip, and same phenomena.
    After that I got a latest.zip twice, installed it and WP asked me for an update !
    AND this update worked successfully !

    My version file states that I am using 2.5.1.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    We were editing ourt posts at the same time, friend. I came back from MY edit, and saw yours. I didnt NOT change my reply after reading yours.

    Wanna talk about genius’s ?? Im not the one who cant figure out what the hell version of software im using.

    prestonf,

    follow the link above, and make sure that you havent been the victim of an exploit. Better safe than sorry.

    I’m just gonna do an upgrade. Enough of the masturbatory BS. whooami? You’re an asshole.
