Stop WordPress Auto Core Updates
03 October 2016
WordPress can automatically update your website for security reasons. Despite the security benefits, there is a possibility that these core updates can break your WordPress theme.
By placing the below code into your wp-config file you can disable automatic background updates in WordPress. This will allow you to at least update it manually only when you are happy that nothing will break.
Automatic updates have appeared in WordPress since version 3.7 and later in an effort to promote better security.
The code to add:
/** stop WordPress auto core updates **/ define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );
