There are pros and cons with wordpress auto update. Sometimes, your site may crash if wordpress fails to update automatically. I suggest updating wordpress manually.
To disable wordpress auto update feature, you need to configure wp-config.php file. The wp-config.php is an important wordpress file, located at the root of your wordpress file directory.
Configuring wp-config.php file
- Open wp-config.php file via FTP or host provider site
- Add below code anywhere in wp-config.php file (add at the end, before ?> line, to avoid confusion)
- Save and upload the file to your wordpress file root directory
Done. WordPress auto update is disabled. Next time, when there is a wordpress update, a message like shown below displays to admin to update wordpress manually.
