We have no changes to core files.
I am trying to upgrade a remote development site from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
After making a backup of all files, I uploaded the contents of the magento folder in
magento-184.108.40.206-2016-02-23-06-03-22.zip 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 @ 220.127.116.11.
Nothing was broken, but wondering what final step I need to do to complete the upgrade?
