Hi all
I few weeks ago I updated to 3.7.1. I had some issues initially but everything is working fine now. The only thing that I am worried about now is the new automatic update feature. I want to be able to decide when to update to the next release. I want to always take backups just before the update and I also need to check that certain plugins will work with any next release. My question is how can I disable this new feature? Can anyone please help?

locate the file wp-config.php  and edit it by adding this line
define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );
