Upgrade - Manual VS Admin?

  1. 1. When you upgrade WHMCS do you use the admin or FTP?

Hello WHMCS family,

With the release of V7.8 here I became curious as to how few people are still doing manual updates now.

I use the Admin based update for my dev installs and it works flawlessly but I still cannot bring myself to stop using the good old FTP/manual process for my production domain.

How about you?

I never get Automatic Updating (Admin) works for me.

Today also, I tried and found that error message says, Update Failed.

The reason? Automatic Updating says to check the PHP Execution time and Memory limit.

I gave 6000 for  PHP Execution time and added 512 MB to Memory limit. 

My usual way is using Softaculous; I installed it using Softaculous itself.

Since Softaculous hasn't released 7.8.1 yet, I have installed the 7.8.1 patch manually via cPanel's File Manager, not FTP.

Same here 😀

I use a third-party solution. I don't know how it works but it works for files, db, full backups and incremental ones. My only concern are explosions since my websites and backup are all hosted in the same datacenter but I have plan B (NAS at office) and C (NAS at home).
