WordPress Error: Database Update Required

WordPress Error: Database Update Required

This is due to a missmatch between the databases versions you said you are using in the settings.

Please follow this steps:

  1. Go to /wp-include/ folder and open the version.php.
  2. Find the value for $wp_db_version, and write it down.
  3. Now, open your database, check in the table called wp_options
  4. Find the db_version value:

    SELECT option_value FROM yourdatabase.wp_options WHERE option_name = db_version;

  5. Those two values must be the same. Change it in the version.php file, not the database.
