We have no changes to core files.

I am trying to upgrade a remote development site from to

After making a backup of all files, I uploaded the contents of the magento folder in magento- to the web root.

After the upload was complete, I loaded the front end home page URL, then checked the back end, and the version remained @

Nothing was broken, but wondering what final step I need to do to complete the upgrade?

  • Did you clear cache?

  • No, @PYYick, but after running Flush Magento Cache the version remains @ I did flush the cache before the upgrade process began.

  • Note: next time you can upgrade core via Magento Connect, rather than complete file overwrite

To confirm you have upgraded all your code you can check your app/Mage.php file to confirm your new version is in place.

cat app/Mage.php | grep version -A 12

This will return a string that gives you the version number from Magento

 public static function getVersionInfo()
        return array(
            'major'     => '1',
            'minor'     => '9',
            'revision'  => '3',
            'patch'     => '3',
            'stability' => '',

To confirm all your cache is cleared you can remove the files in your var/cache folder as well as making sure REDIS or Memcache is cleared
