 Each message has a unique ID shown in square brackets. Only messages which have a higher ID than the one configured in the global variable ''$updateVersion'' in ''./doku.php'' will be displayed. When [[DokuWiki]] is upgraded to the release announced in the message, the ''doku.php'' file will be upgraded as well, suppressing the message. If you don't want to upgrade to an announced release you can simply increase the number in ''doku.php''.

-When [[install:upgrade|upgrading your installation]], it might happen that DokuWiki continues to show the update message, even though the number in ''doku.php'' was increased by the upgrade. This is because DokuWiki caches already fetched messages for a day and will only refetch if the last modified timestamp of ''doku.php'' is higher than the one of the cache file. To stop the outdated update message from showing you can simply wait a day, touch((//touch// is a UNIX command to change a file's date and time, the so-called "timestamp")) the ''doku.php'' or delete the ''data/cache/messages.txt'' cache file. +When [[install:upgrade|upgrading your installation]], it might happen that DokuWiki continues to show the update message, even though the number in ''doku.php'' was increased by the upgrade.
