Upgrade from version to


Just upgraded from Testrail version to Testrail version and getting the following error in the System Log.

Is there a known fix for this issue ?

Hi John,

Thanks for your posting. This means that one of your users still has a TestRail page open that was served with the previous TestRail version. TestRail would detect the different client/server version numbers and adds this message to the log. You can simply ignore this message and the user would only need to refresh his browser page.
