it keeps saying the database needs to be updated, but it is stuck in a loop.

Hello,

Thank you for question about a Database update problem in WordPress. We were able to get it working by uploading the latest version of WordPress (4.1), and replacing all of your files/folders except the wp-content.

Then, we added your database information to the wp-config file, and navigating to: example.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php (we replaced example.com with your actual domain name)

WordPress then prompted us to complete the upgrade process, and the site began working after that.

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

Thank you,
John-Paul
