Enabling the Smart Update feature in WordPress Toolkit
Updated Friday December 11th 2020 / Category Web Hosting

What is Smart Update?

Smart Update is a feature that allows you to test updates to your website, its plugins and themes without actually affecting the website itself.

This feature will clone the website, run all of the updates on the clone, then run a number of checks against the updated website to see if the updates caused any issues.

All going well, the results of the changes made to the clone will be made available to you as the owner of the website. And you can make an educated guess as to whether or not you want to push the updated version of the website to the live website.

How to enable Smart Update

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Click on WordPress Toolkit under Applications
  3. Turn Smart Update on by click on the switch next to “Smart Update”
    cPanel enable WordPress Toolkit smart update
