I have two dozen installations of WordPress on my servers and until my most recent install, I have had to manually update versions (my preferred method). But this morning I received that a notice that this latest install updated to 5.7.2 automatically. I'd like to turn this off but only see a way to toggle minor vs. major updates on the Update screen. There is no mention of updates in wp-config.php, however, there are settings in wp_options that show
disabled (I just did this via the Update screen) and now
enabled. I searched the "Interwebs" on how to turn this off. Is this the default? and can it only be overridden by wp-config.php or the MySQL command line?
This thread (ibid. #131334) explains some random process, but that doesn't seem very safe and a bit domineering.
