Your phpList version is older than two years. Please upgrade phpList before continuing. Visit the support site if you need some help


Hello everything i read here, but still have this problem. I cant login to the dashboard! Because always this sentence came.
I copy the new phplist via FTP and rename the old list folder into lists_old…but still get this sententences…
I thing it is in the database not in the index.php, there i delete it.
But what else can i do.

Have you followed the instructions in this post?


You can disable the message and the corresponding check by deleting these lines from your admin/index.php file. Note that the code, not the line numbers, should be checked, because the line numbers are different in different versions of phpList:

    if (defined('RELEASEDATE') && ((time() - RELEASEDATE) / 31536000) > 2) {
    Fatal_Error(s('Your phpList version is older than two years. Please %supgrade phpList</a> before continuing.</br>
        Visit <a href="" title="'.s('Get some help').'">the support site</a> if you need some help.'
        ,'<a href="'.VERSION.'&amp;utm_medium=outdated-download-forced&amp;utm_campaign=phpList" title="'.s('Download the latest version').'" target="_blank">'));



yes i disable it, but still get the notice, this is very strange. Is there maybe also in the database this notice? I tried several times.


No this notice can come only from the code that @dragonrider referenced. It looks like either you edited the wrong copy of phpList, or the wrong file, or perhaps the file is cached by your Webserver somehow.
