How to activate one click update WordPress core and plugins in marketplace Application?

Dear, friends.

I have deploy a server using One Click marketplace applications. I choose WordPress on Ubuntu 18.04

The default installation WordPress version is still the old one, WordPress 4.9.8 , today the latest release is 5.3.2 .

  1. In WordPress dashboard, ussualy we can click a button to update the WordPress Core. The buttons is not working, the server block it somehow. How to enable it?

  2. In plugins page we can add plugins from WordPress .org repository. There is no ADD PLUGINS one click install button. How to enable it?

Please help, any suggestion to fix these issue? Thank you.

Hi there @Technosatmedia,

I just created a 1-Click Wordpress Droplet and teste this but it looks to be working as expected at my end:

Wordpress 1-click update

I am using Google Chrome and the update and ‘add new’ plugins buttons are present as normal.

Can you share a screenshot of your WordPress dashboard with the missing links?

Regards, Bobby
