How to enable automatic updates for WP Cerber

Starting from WP Cerber 9.2, you can enable automatic plugin updates in just a couple clicks. If you are using an older version of WP Cerber, please follow these simple steps to update the plugin to the latest version: https://wpcerber.com/installation/

To enable automatic updates for WP Cerber, you need to enable the following two settings on the “Main Settings” tab:

  1. Enable “Use WP Cerber’s plugin repository”
  2. Enable “Automatically update WP Cerber”
  3. Save settings

From now on, whenever a new version of WP Cerber is available in our official repository, or in the wordpress.org plugin repository it will be automatically installed on your website keeping your WordPress secure. For more detailed information, please refer to the information provided below.

Enable using the WP Cerber plugin repository

Click “WP Cerber” in the admin menu of your WordPress dashboard. Go to the “Main Settings” tab. Scroll down to the “Site-Specific Settings” section. Enable “Use WP Cerber’s plugin repository” and save the settings. Now, if a newer version of WP Cerber is available to install, you see a prompt announcing this version on the “Plugins” admin page. You can click the “update now” link to update the plugin.

It’s important to note that if a new version is available to install from the wordpress.org plugin repository, it is installed from it. It means the plugin version from the wordpress.org plugin repository has priority over the version from the WP Cerber repository.
