Can't get past Software Update (and Continue)
One of my customers has asked me for help with an old Perch site (on release 2.4.2) she has, that we didn't develop and don't host.
As background, in Oct 2015, we took a look with a view to taking it on. We told them to leave the site as it was. That's because it didn't need enhancing, it worked, and the previous developer had developed the site by hacking into core code. We felt that updating the site beyond 2.4.2 would probably break it. The site's worked fine since then, and until now.
The customer went to log in (to do a news update), and gets the message 'Software Update' and 'Successfully updated to version 2.4.2.'. Clicking the 'continue' button just displays the same screen again. Version 2.4.2 is the same level the site was on back in Oct 2015. So, I'm unsure why logging on should display such a message.
I've requested FTP access (we don't host it) so I can look around. I'm wondering if the username I have isn't an admin user. I'm also wondering if the site's had the PHP version increased and that's the issue. When I get a chance I can look at these things and try to work out what's wrong. Anyone come across this or have any other ideas of what it might be?
