  1. If Wordpress is installed as an Plesk application, go to Subscriptions > domain_name > Applications > Manage My Applications and click on "Update avaliable" button, see screenshot:

    Note: New version availability is being checked by daily Maintenance Script in Plesk. If you still does not see "Update avaliable" button please wait for Daily Maintenance script or run the following two commands:

    #/usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/DailyMaintainance/script.php -f UpdateApsCache

    #/usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/DailyMaintainance/script.php -f UpdateApsApplications
