I want to disable backups on updates. I noticed you said in an earlier support ticket:

If you do not want that to happen go to Akeeba Backup, System Configuration, click on the Backup on Update tab and disable this feature by setting “Backup on manual WordPress update” to No.


I cannot find this "backup on update tab". Can you supply a screenshot? 


Many thanks,



Akeeba Staff

Go to your WordPress administration (wp-admin) interface.

From the left-hand sidebar click on Akeeba Backup.

Scroll all the way down.

Click on System Configuration.

Click on the Backup on Update tab. Important! This only shows IF AND ONLY IF you have Akeeba Backup for WordPress Professional installed on your site. If you have the Core version you need to upgrade it to Akeeba Backup for WordPress Professional. You are already subscribed to that product.

Set the “Backup on manual WordPress update” to No.

Click on the Save & Close button above the tab bar.
