I built a website for a friend which is using a slightly modified version of Cafe Pro which has been renamed
On the last Genesis update 2.7.1 - 2.7.2 - I clicked update as normal but it wont update. It has always updated in the past for the last couple of years without issue. Now I get a message saying it's already at the latest version but all the version info still shows 2.7.1 and I keep getting the nag to update.
It doesn't matter how many times I try it, it wont update.
What can I do? I don't want to break the site as I'm fairly amateur at all this.
Thanks for any suggestionshttp://mindfulpets.co.uk
Do you have caching enabled for the site, either through your host, a CDN, or a plugin? If so, clear all caches and try again.
If not, download V. 2.7.2 from the download area and update it manually through FTP.
The only recent change I made is that I moved it to https using Cloudflare. I wonder if it's something to do with that?
So if I upload 2.7.2 via FTP and delete 2.7.1 it shouldn't break the site?
Thanks for your help
No it won't break the site, but because you are using Cloudflare, you may not see any changes until you purge the Cloudflare cache and let it rebuild.
Always do a backup before any updates just in case something goes wrong.
