Hello,

One of my customers has recently installed Wordpress v3.8 and I keep on getting Software security notice

- WordPress.0 v3.8
Location: at http://..
Latest: v3.6.1
Upgrade here: https://..

Basically cpanel script claims that 3.6.1 it is latest and it's greater than v3.8 ..is this a bug or it cannot get the wordpress version right because of the user install?

Hello :)

To ensure the application remains managed by cPanel, upgrades must only occur using the links provided in the email, or via the "Site Software" option within cPanel. Anytime an application is manually upgraded through the application's administrative panel, or by uploading the files via FTP, it prevents cPanel from managing that application at any point in the future. Thus, you must remove the cPAddon data (it's stored in a YAML file) for the application manually upgraded from the following directory:

Code:
/home/username/.cpaddons
Thank you.
