[SOLVED] Where does the "Current Version" Info Come From?

URL to your eFiction: http://drfa.seventh-star.net
Version of eFiction: 3.5.5 (I think)
Have you bridged eFiction, if so with what?: Nope, N/A
Version of PHP: can be found out from your host
Version of MySQL: 5.3.27
Have you searched for your problem: Yes
If so, what terms did you try: "Upgrading," Updating," "Current Version"
State the nature of your problem: I updated to 3.5.5 from 3.5.3. I understand we shouldn't need to run "update.php" anymore, but I was getting stuck on the update.php page anyway (not being able to navigate away from it, getting redirected to it if I took it out of the URL). I followed Tammy's instructions for manually updating the version number in PHPMyAdmin in the settings table, but now the Version Check says I need to update...from 3.5.5. to 3.5.3?! Where is it getting this information, anyway?
Do you have a test account for us? Yes; username: Test Account, password:t3st3r

Should be fixed now ... the current version is in a file on the efiction server, your admin panel simply compares the two strings, and if they differ it assumes your version is older than the one available.

I updated the file on the server, please say if that took care of it.

I hope upcoming versions will use version_compare()?  😛

Yup, fixed--thanks! ~_~ I hope it really is updated and isn't just because I manually went into the settings table and changed the number. I *DID* replace all the files with the new versions (except skins, images, etc.)
