Joomla! 3.1.2 wasn't an officially released version and my install was upgraded accidentally during a pre release error.

Versions affected

General Information

This pertains only to Joomla! version(s):- 3.1.2


What is the cause

Some people automatically updated prior to the release due to receiving premature notification of the release while final testing of the release packages by the Joomla! Bug Squad was beginning. See 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 3.1.4 WHAT IS GOING ON?

How to fix

The version is visible on the bottom right of your admin view or can be found by going to the System  System Information menu.

  1. Before performing an upgrade please ensure that you have an up to date and tested backup of your web site.
  2. Log in to the /administrator of your web site using your username and password. This must be for a Super User account, that is, one with permission to do updates. If you are the main administrator for the site you are probably a Super User.
  3. Go to the Components menu and select ‘Joomla Update’
  4. Click Install the Update.
  5. You will get a success message saying “Your site has been successfully updated. Your Joomla version is now 3.1.3.”
  6. Reload your page to display the update screen again. If the update screen does not display you will need to clear your browser cache.
  7. Click the “Purge Cache”' button.
  8. You will get an update notification that version 3.1.4 is available.
  9. Click Install the Update.
  10. You will get a success message saying “Your site has been successfully updated. Your Joomla version is now 3.1.4.”
  11. As a final check, visit the database screen by clicking Extensions  Extensions and then Database on the side menu It should look like the image below.
If it indicates there are any problems, click “Fix.”
At this point your site is up to date.
If you need additional support or have problems updating please visit the Joomla forums.
