    Plugin update notifaction , but which one ?

    A small feature enhancements , you get notified that a plugin have updated itself and the server wants to restart .

    Can LMS prompt which plugin that is updated , so that you can decide if you want to restart now or just let it wait until next reboot .

    Just turn off auto-install. You'll still get notifications of new plugins and when you go to the Plugins page you'll see the ones to be updated at the top of the screen. Then just tick, apply and restart when you're ready.

    I can't see the point of automatic installation unless it does the reboot as well, or you're still not up-to-date anyway and have to manually intervene.

    If it tells you that it's updated something and you need to reboot then that isn't really what I'd call automatic. Automatic to me would be quietly doing it when the server was idle or overnight, for instance.

    If you have it just checking for updates and not applying them then you'll still know that there are plugins to be updated and you simply tick the ones you want to update and then it reboots.

    So it's only a tiny bit more manual than how it works in automatic mode, and gives you the functionality you're looking for, i.e. letting you decide when to reboot based on which plugins need an update.

    it only wants to restart the LMS/SBS application the server itself is still running so it is semi automatic restart of the application is not the same as rebooting the whole server .

    In small steps id did not mention the obvius that some plugin upgrades should be done to a running server without restart. Some plugins are tangled in the dB and scanning and may need a restart to be "realigned" with whatever the server is up to.

    Worst case is that it is drawback of using perl and old versions cant be ofloaded on the fly.

    Sorry, I was using reboot is a general term. I did mean only the SBS/LMS application!

    I will try your advice to , but updates are frequent and I'm prone to forget..

    But a qualified guess as I'm running 7.7.1 .

    *it's erland fighting to get his plugins to behave in 7.7.1 good.

    *and Triode trying to get libspotify to work on whatever the weird cpu spec of the week

    If you use the web interface you'll still see the prompt in the lower left corner so give it a try.

    I reported this in 2009 - and no action yet so don't hold your breath :-)

    I turned off automatic, as others suggest.
