Step 1: Login to the cPanel account and open the WP Autoupdate tool located in the WordPress Tools section.
Step 2: Here you can find information about the latest available WordPress version and a list of all WordPress installations opted for autoupdates. You can see the current version of each installation, as well as its autoupdate status.
Step 3: Click on Auto update settings. As soon as the new version is released you’d like to get your WordPress auto updated and whether the plugins in your installation should be updated together with the main WordPress update.
WordPress Auto Update Settings: You can set different update intervals for WordPress minor or major releases. Minor releases include security improvements and bug fixes and we recommend immediate update for these. Major releases introduce functionality updates and more significant changes.
Backup Restoration: If any issues occur with your website due to the automatic update feature, you can always restore your site to its state before the update. WordPress Autoupdate stores a backup of your website each time it performs an automatic update. If something goes wrong, simply select your site and select the Restore button.
Skip or Disable the Auto update: Having an updated WordPress website is crucial for your security and therefore we don’t recommend skipping updates. If you insist to do it, though, you can skip scheduled updates in the interval between the time when the new version is released and your scheduled auto update. Doing this will skip only the current update but not the upcoming ones.
