How to disable wordpress Automatic Background Updates

Automatic background updates were introduced in WordPress 3.7 in an effort to promote better security, and to streamline the update experience overall. By default, only minor releases – such as for maintenance and security purposes – and translation file updates are enabled on most sites. In special cases, plugins and themes may be updated.

In WordPress, there are four types of automatic background updates:

Core updates
Plugin updates
Theme updates
Translation file updates

Automatic updates can be configured using one of methods: defining constants in wp-config.php

Constant to Disable All Updates

1
define( 'AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED', true );

Constant to Configure Core Updates

1
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );

WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE can be defined with one of three values, each producing a different behavior:

Value of true – Development, minor, and major updates are all enabled
Value of false – Development, minor, and major updates are all disabled
Value of ‘minor’ – Minor updates are enabled, development, and major updates are disabled

To enable automatic updates for all plugins, use the following:

1
add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_true' );

To enable automatic updates for all themes, use the following:

1
add_filter( 'auto_update_theme', '__return_true' );

To disable automatic updates for all plugins including security team updates, use the following:

1
add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_false' );

To disable automatic updates for all themes including security team updates, use the following:

1
add_filter( 'auto_update_theme', '__return_false' );
