As part of our standard environment, WP Engine includes an awesome Restore Point feature that allows you to easily create a backup of your site at a single point in time. Because this feature may not be something that you remember to use often, we include a popup to prompt you to create a restore point before making updates to plugins or themes on your site. It appears as follows:
While our goal is to ensure that you can always get back to a working version of your site if something goes wrong, we certainly understand how this feature can be frustrating at times.
With that in mind, there’s an easy way to disable this popup window. To do so, add the following line to the wp-config.php file found in the root directory of your site:
define( 'WPE_POPUP_DISABLED', true );
