Wordpress Softaculous Update

I recently updated Wordpress to version 3.6 from within wordpress. And now, when I log into my Cpanel, it gives me a message through Softaculous that I need to upgrade Wordpress from 3.5.2 to 3.6

I haven't clicked on the button yet, because I am afraid it might mess up with my installation. What do you suggest I do to alert softaculous software that I already have the latest files?

Hello zorakenith,

Thank you for your question. Since you updated the software in Wordpress instead of Softaculous, it did not know the version changed.

I was able to update the version that Softaculous thought you were running by navigating to the file:

I then located: 3.5.2 in the file, and changed it to 3.6. When I went to Softaculous, it was no longer prompting to update.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
