In order to bring some older blog posts back to the light of day I’m reposting some How-To’s in the Community. This was originally a blog post by @bogdan from March 2015
If you want MainWP dashboard to update Plugins and/or Themes automatically for you, you need to enable the Auto Updates feature and to mark plugins (themes) you trust to be automatically updated.
Enabling Auto Updates FeatureTo enable auto updates, go to: MainWP > Settings > Global option tab and locate the Upgrade options box:
In Automatic daily update box choose Install Trusted Updates option and click the Save Settings button in the bottom of the page.
Marking Plugins (Themes) as trustedSetting a Plugin or Theme as Trusted means that YOU trust this plugin/theme and its developer and are choosing to allow MainWP to manage it for you. This means that the MainWP Plugin will only update instances marked as Trusted. By default, all your Themes, Plugins and Blogs are marked as Untrusted. To get started with auto-updates, mark all plugins/themes you trust and turn on the auto-updates feature.
To mark a Plugins (Themes), go to:
1.MainWP > Plugins (Themes) > Auto Updates tab
Use the provided filters to refine your search.
Click the Show Plugins (Themes) button.
Then you need to place a check in the Plugin or Plugins (Themes) box you would like to mark as Trusted. Select Trusted from the drop-down list and click Confirm to save your changes.
Now, your MainWP Dashboard will install trusted updates for you.
