Last modified: Tuesday November 21st, 2023

The upcoming guide will demonstrate how to activate automatic upgrades for your installations through the Softaculous Enduser panel. By enabling auto upgrades for specific installations, they will be automatically updated via CRON as soon as the latest version becomes accessible in Softaculous.

NOTE: The Auto Upgrade feature is available in Softaculous 4.2.1 and higher.

NOTE: This functionality is currently limited to specific scripts. Additional scripts will be included in this feature in the near future.
