The Site Software function injects code into WordPress core files to retain management of the application. Unfortunately the injected code prevents WordPress updates from within WordPress dashboard, additionally the Site Software updates are stalled so users are not to update to the latest WordPress version for several months after its release.
For the reasons mentioned above, the use of the Site Software tool has made websites more prone to becoming hacked since they're more frequently running outdated, insecure versions of WordPress.
As part of our continuous improvement of security, we will be removing the Site Software function from our available services.
Removing Site Software management is easy! You will just need to remove Site Software's added files. However if you are not confident making these changes, please request the assistance of your developer or technically savvy friend.
Please begin by either; logging into cPanel, and going to the File Manager function or logging into the server via SSH.
There's a directory labelled .cpaddons in your accounts home directory. Once this directory has been deleted, the site software function will no longer be managing your application.
Don't worry, the directory .cpaddons will recreate itself again on the next cron run without the Site Software function code- so you won't need to continue removing that directory after the initial removal.
