Will the Core Update feature in WordPress 2.7 work on your webhosting account? One way to find out is to view the new article in the Codex entitled “Core Update Host Compatibility“. This article serves as a central location to discover whether or not the Core Update feature works with a specific web hosting company. The article is divided up into three sections and lists webhosting companies in alphabetical order:
- Working Hosts, No Issues
- Works With Caveats
- Doesn’t Work
Keep in mind that:
It is important to note that the update feature will not work when updating to Version 2.7, but rather will work for Versions released AFTER 2.7 (e.g. upgrading from 2.7 to 2.7.1)!
If you discover during the beta test period that the core update feature works on your webhosting account, please add the company to the Codex article within the appropriate section.
