Using the Smart Update feature in WordPress Toolkit
Updated Thursday January 28th 2021 / Category Web Hosting

What does Smart Update do?

When enabled, Smart Update allows users to test an update for their website without actually affecting the website itself. Smart Update will create a clone of the website, then completes any pending updates on the clone. From there, it completes some changes to see if there are any issues that were caused by the updates.

The results of the update are made available, allowing you to make an educated decision regarding applying the updates to your website.

How do I enable Smart Update?

If you haven’t already installed or imported an installation into cPanel’s WordPress Toolkit, you will need to do that first to be able to use this feature.

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Click on WordPress Toolkit under Applications.
  3. Click on the switch next to Smart Update to enable it.
