Country dropdown menu on billing address checkout page does not populate after upgrade
After pear failed to upgrade my magento I had to upgrade it manually by overwriting my magento folder with the newest version using svn. Everything went well including the database upgrade. However when testing the order checkout I realized that on the billing address form, the country drop down menu just does not populate.
Any idea what went wrong and more importantly I would really appreciate a hint on how to fix this.
