Support » Fixing WordPress » Migration 4.9.10

  • Hello. I am informed that my WordPress configuration has been migrated to 4.9.10. It is a minor change and it is normal to do it and I approve it: thank you. But I am surprised that I am not informed before this change. I receive a mail (in french language) that is signed by “the wordpress team”, but it informs me that the change has been already done. How is decided this change ? How is it scheduled ? I take advantage of this message to tell you that I want to decide by myself for the major migration to release 5.n.n and I do not want this major migration to be automatically done, as this minor change has been done.
    Thank you for your clarification. Truly yours – Denis ROSSET

    I am informed that my WordPress configuration has been migrated to 4.9.10.

    Who informed you?

    WordPress provides the software for other people to use their own sites on their own hosts. Hence it cannot change your site’s configuration.

    Please try contacting your hosting provider.

    The default for WordPress updates is that major releases are manually initiated, and minor releases are automatically initiated. (There are plugins to change this behavior.)
    The reason that minor releases are pushed automatically is that they are often security releases. You have the choice, when it is a major release (whenever the middle number of the release changes, like 4.8.4 to 4.9.0 or 4.9.9 to 5.0).
    Some hosts, however, push updates for major releases, but that is out of WordPress’ control.

    You can add the following to wp-config.php if you want to disable automatic updates;

    define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );
