"Database Update Required" Loop - Can't Access Dashboard



Hi there! Hadn’t logged into my dashboard recently until last week when i was trying to login and getting this msg:

“Database Update Required. WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.
The update process may take a little while, so please be patient.”

I hit the Update Wordpress Database button. Then I get this msg:
“Update Complete
Your WordPress database has been successfully updated!”

Then I click the ‘Continue’ button and I get the first message again.

I know Dreampress updates automatically, my site worked fine before
Can someone fix this issue? Why am I seeing this?

Thanks for your help!


Sometimes this happens when the DB cache gets ‘stuck’

If you’re savvy with Command Line, log in and run this:

wp cache flush

If you’re not, open a support ticket and ask them to please do that for you.

We do run a command to auto-flush after upgrade, but once in a while it derps :confused:


Thanks for your prompt response. The kind people at the support desk were able to sort this out for me. Cheers!
