I was following the instructions to upgrade to 4.7.14 here: https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Upgrading+CiviCRM+for+Wordpress It clearly says to extract the zip file in /wp-content/plugins/. It then says to clear caches and point to the upgrade url. This leads to: Your database has already been upgraded to CiviCRM 4.7.13. The extract left things in a directory called: civicrm-4.7.14-wordpress. This implied to me that the upgrade will move things from there to the civicrm directory, but reading things here and elsewhere I suspect that files need to be extracted (or moved) to the civicrm directory. There are no instructions to do that. Should I remove the civicrm/ tree and move civicrm-4.7.14-wordpress/civicrm to plugins/?
The assumption that was made in the instructions is that you must extract the files into the
/wp-content/plugins/ directory and then rename the resulting file to
civicrm, just like the old directory was named. The previous step to this was to backup
E.g. Back up and delete
/wp-content/plugins/civicrm then extract the new version and name it
civicrm and put it in
/wp-content/plugins/, thus replace the previous.
