Support » Fixing WordPress » Can ‘Database Update Required’ be automated?

  • aCstudent


    My sites have auto-updated to WP 5.1, but when I login I get … “Database Update Required. WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.” I have to click the button to continue. Can this part of the update process also be automated? I always have a recent backup so I can restore if anything goes horribly wrong.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    WP 5.1 is a major release, so it is not auto updated.



    Thank you Joy. I put a snippet in wp-config.php so that my sites auto-update both major and minor releases as well as plugins and themes. My question is whether I can auto-update the db as well, when the WP update requires it.



    Weird. My local copy on the PC gave the upgrade DB prompt but the one my webhost did not… wonder why?
