@leejosepho: thanx for your answer. That is a good indication.
I was just wondering if there is anything that might go wrong, for instance during a database update (as part of the WP auto-update). Is there someone who is familiar with what is going on in the core files who can tell for sure if there is a problem (or not) with a wp-admin directory that has restricted access. I’d like to be sure before I auto-update…
Thanks for your answer. I guess my question partly came from a screenshot somewhere, where I saw a log entry in the auto-update e-mail mentioning the database update. That matches my experience where I see the database update mentioned on the screen with any automatic update in version 3.6 and less.
I guess it is only mentioned, but no changes are actually performed on the database.
That is rather confusing. I really don’t want to find myself in a situation where the source code is changed and a database update did not go thru.
I’ll try to trust that all changes are fine. If anything comes up along the way, I’ll know where to go.
