WordPress Manager Version 1.1.2

Released December 8, 2017

RPM-based cPAddon migration with Automatic Updates

In WordPress Manager 1.1.2, we added the ability to migrate your legacy WordPress cPAddon installations with the Automatic Updates feature. When you enable Automatic Updates feature for a legacy cPAddon WordPress installations, WordPress Manager will automatically migrate it to the RPM-based WordPress cPAddon.

You can also manually migrate legacy WordPress cPAddon installations with the /scripts/migrate_legacy_wordpress_to_modern_wordpress script.

 


WordPress Manager Version 1.1

Released July 19, 2017

Update any administrator's password

In WordPress Manager version 1.1, we added the ability to update the password for any WordPress user that possesses the administrator role.

Automatic update settings

In WordPress Manager version 1.1, we added the ability to change each WordPress installation's update settings. You can enable minor and security updates, enable all updates for the WordPress installation, or disable all updates. We also expanded the automatic update messages to include additional information about your WordPress installation's update settings. When you click Manage on one of your installations, the interface will notify you whether you enabled updates for major versions, minor versions, or disabled updates. For more information about versions, read WordPress's Version Numbering documentation.

Note:

If you install any WordPress plugin that manages automatic updates, you must manage your updates through that plugin's interface. The WordPress Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Applications >> WordPress Manager) will display your update settings, but you cannot manage them through this interface.
