I have previously shown you how to update manually wordpress on your Synology in the following post:
But today I am going to show you how to do it “automatically”. It is faster and error free. 🙂
The first thing you need is to set up or enable your FTP in your synology control panel under File Services.
If you havent done that before, follow the tutorial above, as you will need to open port 21 on your router.
I normally have my FTP disabled and I enable it only when i need it, for example, for updating wordpress.
Once you have updated it, go to your wordpress site, and click on the Update Now button:
Now you will have to enter your FTP credentials:
- Your synology’s name:i.e: xxxx.synology.me
- Your synology’s username
- Your synology’s Password
- Select FTP or FTPS
- and you are done.
Once you performed this steps your wordpress will update automatically.
Pssss! The same procedure works when updating your plugins! 🙂
