    I happened to install a Wordpress blog through Cpanel. However as the version updates did not happen for a few days after release, I manually upgraded the software by replacing the needed files.

    Now, even though my software version is updated, Cpanel keeps sending me these notices because we did not apply the update through it.

    Can you suggest how to disable these notices for this website?

    To ensure the application remains managed by cPanel, you can only upgrade using the links provided in the email, or via the "Site Software" option within cPanel. Anytime you manually upgrade or move an application through the application's administrative panel, or by uploading the files via FTP, it prevents cPanel from managing that application at any point in the future. Thus, you must remove the cPAddon data (it's stored in a YAML file) for the application you manually upgraded from the following directory:


    Thank you.
