I downloaded a current copy of my production database into my development environment. Both the production and development environments are EE v2.4.0. When I logged on to the control panel I received the following error message:
An unexpected error occurred attempting to download the current ExpressionEngine version number. Please visit your Download Account to verify you are on the current version. If this error persists, please contact your system administrator
What is EE checking to determine this? How do resolve it.
My apologies to all readers. It is not EE 1.4 but it is EE2.4. My apologies to all respondents.
