I am writing a plugin, I want, in some cases, to tell WordPress to update that plugin, and that plugin only, immediately.
I know that there is a transient called
update_plugins that contains the latest time the plugin was updated. and from that value, WordPress checks if 12 hours have passed.
I have tried to manually change that value in order to fool WordPress into thinking the last update happened more than 12 hours ago and therefore trriger a new update check But that didn't work, The value in the transient is changed but the update is not triggered.
This is the code I used:
$update_plugins = get_site_transient( 'update_plugins' ); $update_plugins->last_checked = $update_plugins->last_checked - 86400; set_site_transient( 'update_plugins', $value );
What can I do to change the WordPress auto-update rate? Is there a hook I can use?
