  2. Mitch Cass says:

    This is great information. However, I have a question. Will Opencart upgrade automatically, or will Softaculous notify me of upgrades and provide some kind of automation, or do I need to FTP manually?

  3. Avesta says:

    Hi Mitch,

    Softaculous has an upgrade option, but you must go in there and click upgrade whenever a new version is available in Softaculous. So, while it will try to upgrade it for you, it will not automatically do it for you upon new releases without your consent.
