Stop Automatic WordPress Updates

wp-updateFor the everyday user, WordPress automatic updates is a lifesaver. They don’t have to worry about anything major. But, for business running their own sites and client’s sites on WordPress, it is very important not to be updating WordPress, it’s plugins or the theme automatically. Why? Sometimes us, those who configure their sites and make them work just the way the client needs, avoid to use the latest update. Not because we don’t want to, but because some of the plugins we use for such sites are not updated ahead of time but rather days or weeks after the update has been released.

However, I do recommend having the latest version of WordPress installed when possible. Each version gives us better security updates and features.

So, for those who want to Stop Automatic WordPress Updates, just add this to your wp-config.php file

define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );

And that’s all there is to it! Hope this helps you!
