Are there any advantages/disadvantages to doing a ‘Custom’ One-Click WordPress install opposed to a Manual install? I’m concerned that if I do the one-click install I’ll discover a limitation somewhere down the road.
The one-click install is basically identical to what you’d get by doing a manual install, except:
[list] It comes with some additional themes and plugins preinstalled. (And we’ll soon have an option to turn this off, too.)
 It can automatically run updates for you, or let you know when updates are available.[/list]
There’s no real downside — go for it.
Actually, there is ONE problem. The one-click install is setup to auto upgrade as well, which can cause problems with plugins that are not yet updated to handle the newest version of wordpress.
I noticed today that my two site’s auto-initiated the upgrade process without any warning. Yikes!
I̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶y̶ ̶w̶a̶y̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶u̶r̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶f̶e̶a̶t̶u̶r̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶?̶
Thankfully though, this can be turned off - or set to notify first. To do so, which I would recommend, go to your Admin area > One-Click Installs > Manage Installed Applications and you’ll see the option to change the “Upgrade Action”.
