Automatic Updates

Update your software automatically

Accessible for the Developer and Business plan users only.

On the Automatic updates subpage, you can see which of your web applications have auto-updates enabled. You can turn automatic updates for each of your apps on / off.
Patchstack also has an option to only auto-update the components which have vulnerabilities detected.

Automatic updates feature is available since version 2.0.11. So, if there is no possibility of turning auto-updates on, make sure you have the latest version of Patchstack installed on your site.

For each app, you have the following options:

  1. Auto-update only vulnerable components (recommended)
  2. Auto-update WordPress core
  3. Auto-update plugins
  4. Auto-update themes

Turning on the Auto-Updates

To turn on the Auto-Updates feature, click on Change in the corresponding table row.
You will be shown a popup (see the image below).

To activate any of the options, toggle the buttons.


Keep in mind that updating software could potentially break your site. For safety reasons, it is recommended to auto-update at least your vulnerable components.

After toggling the buttons, click Update.
