How do I enable auto updates in wordpress?

December 10, 2015 2.7k views

I have configured with serverpilot. Now when ever there is a plugin update in wordpress I have to feed the FTP details which never works. How do I enable the feature which used to be in cpanel. Like clicking the update button will automatically do itself.
