Automatic updates scan

The scan

This scan checks if WordPress can be updated automatically for minor updates. Minor updates generally patch security issues or small bugs. These updates are reliable enough to be automatically done in the background. However, you can deactivate them with a plugin or a few lines of code.

Note : if the site is under version control using Git or SVN, it won't be automatically updated.

The fix

SecuPress will activate the « Minor Updates » module, and try to force the activation of these automatic updates. This module can be manually activated in the « WordPress Core » section. SecuPress will also edit the  wp-config.php file.

What if the fix doesn't work ?

Find the plugin responsible for disallowing the automatic updates and deactivate it, or find the corresponding code snippet in your theme's  functions.php file and comment it out or delete it.
