Wordpress auto-update

Post by mister_v »


I have a wordpress site,
and it is working good.
But it suddenly did a automatic update (not plugins, wordpress itself).
It didn't break anything,
but I don't want it to do that.
I wan't to personally launch the update process.

I have been looking around, but couldn't find a option to turn it off.
Anyone know how?

If you have shell access to your server,
you can edit the wp-config.php-file

Add the following line to disable auto-update:

Code: Select all

define( 'automatic_updater_disabled', true );
or if you only want to disable WordPress auto updates

Code: Select all

define( 'wp_auto_update_core', false );

Another, perhaps easier option is installing a plugin:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/stops-cor ... n-updates/

In your WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New. Locate Easy Updates Manager.
It always you to fine tune what should be auto-installed and what not, including plugins.
