We’ve completely revamped how we handle git deployments on the backend of SpinupWP. You won’t notice any changes on the frontend for these particular updates, but great improvements have been made that will further solidify the stability and functionality of our git integration.
In addition to that, you’ll now see a “Git” tab on all sites in SpinupWP, even if they don’t have git enabled.
If your site doesn’t already have git enabled, you can enable it by clicking the “Git” toggle switch.
Now fill in the required information and if needed, install the required WordPress plugins and your site will be ready to start pulling from your repo. Please note, when implementing git on an existing site, all files that are in git will overwrite existing site files with the same path and filename. You can read more about how all of this works in our updated git documentation.

SpinupWP now automatically checks for WordPress core, plugin, and theme updates for you once a day! You can also run these updates right from SpinupWP’s dashboard. If you have updates available, you’ll now see an icon on your dashboard that represents the number of pending updates.
Clicking on this icon will bring up our new WordPress update modal. If your site has git enabled, you’ll be presented with a warning about making WordPress updates outside of your git repo.
If you don’t have git enabled or you choose to proceed with updating anyway, you’ll then see the WordPress update options.
If you’ve already set up backups for your site, you’ll have the option to make a backup before running any WordPress updates.
Simply select the backup option along with the WordPress items you wish to update and submit. SpinupWP will handle the backup and update WordPress for you in the background. You can monitor the status of this process via the events dropdown.
Selecting “View” on a completed WordPress update task will show the detailed output of the process. This is useful for viewing what plugins and themes were updated.
Don’t forget to test once the backup and updates have completed. If interested, you can learn more about updating WordPress in SpinupWP.
In addition to the WordPress updates, we’ve completely revamped our notification system.
