Disable Automatic Updates
By , for WP 3.8.3

While I know it wasn’t the intention of this plugin, I’m now using it across all the websites I host and/or manage in order to disable WP automatic updates. Essentially it provides the user interface that Automattic refused to give us in order to turn auto updates on or off. The updates themselves are rolled out using the iControlWP management console.

Just what I was looking for

Manage a large number of WordPress sites and this is something I'll be using with all of them.

Certain plugins become very insecure once out of date, with risk of spammers exploiting them.

Thank you.. seems to work well thus far.

Nice and efecctive, thanks

A must have for the missing admin interface for the new automatic updates.

I started with another plugin which didn't do the job. I uninstalled, installed this (v 1.0.2), and then Background Update Tester. The latter confirmed that these awful automatic updates were stopped. (Who makes an application force users to automatically update without some mechanism to disable that?)


Works Great,

I use this on every site, even now with the new automatic core updates as of 3.7. It updates plugins and themes too!

Life saver!
