    Default WordPress update - Softaculous or via Dashboard?

    I have a Wordpress installation on a CPanel account. WP was installed via Softaculous, should I update via Softaculous or through WP?

    any and all thoughts are appreciated.

    thanks.

    Well updating via Softaculous is the easier way to update it. Just one click and your done. The only reason I wouldn't use it is if perhaps you have heavily modified the installation. Even then often it would still update but you may have to add back in some of your modifications.

    Softaculous is going to take care of the main installation of WP. Remember that just like if you where updateing it manually you may have themes or add on's that need to be updated also. Those would not be handled by Softaculous.

    thanks!

    this is a fairly straight installation with a couple standard plugins, so I'll probably give it a try with Softaculous.
