Q: Date/Time this occurred (Provide your time zone also) A: 01/04/2023
Q: DevKinsta Version A: 2.10
Q: OS Version A: MacOS 12 latest
Q: Docker Desktop Version A: 4.17
Q: Detailed Description of the Problem A:
Install a new personnalized WP choosing for example v6.1.1.
After the install, the generation of the thumbnail in Devkinsta site page runs the automatic update of WP to 6.2… So we need to delete site files and DB to copy a 6.1.1 version in replacement which is not really convenient.
Thx @Agus !
My method for importing a production website on my server (not from Kinsta) is to create a new site in Devkinsta in 6.2 directly, and then via a script, to empty database, add constants to wp-config.php for desactivating autoupdate, replace WP files with a fresh 6.1.1 version and finally restore my database.
This works perfectly but it could be really helpfull to have an option so set auto update OFF when creating website in DevKinsta
Hello @Agus !
As a matter of facts, having the choice of WordPress version when creating new site in DevKinsta is useless as it will systematically update to latest version on install.
If you want to keep this, we need to have a way to desactivate auto-update.
Sorry for the delay as I was not available on the weekend
I do agree with you, and have now just reported this (submitted as a feature request) to our internal dev team for further check and review!
If it’s something that can be implemented in the future release (though we can’t promise anything yet), we will surely report/post it.
