This feature can be disabled from Softaculous Admin Panel -> Settings page. Following are the guides :
Staging
Push To Live.

2) [Task] : If the WordPress plugins and themes auto upgrade is enabled by the user. They will now be upgraded via Softaculous cron i.e. once every 24 hours, previously they were upgraded only when the WordPress core was upgraded.

3) [Task] : The password encryption for storing passwords like “Database Password”, “API Pass”, “FTP Password” and “SMTP Password” in Softaculous records will now use OpenSSL instead of mcrypt for hashing the password. All the existing passwords will be re-encrypted with the new hashing format when Softaculous will be upgraded to 5.0.5.

4) [Task] : Updated the Remove installation process to delete the “additional files” selected by the user as associated with the installation (only in the domain root folder e.g. public_html/).

11) [Task] : The installation URL submitted on the “Edit Installation” form will now be validated and will be allowed only from the list of domains that exist in the user’s control panel account.

12) [Bug Fix] : Improved memory management in the restore process for a script installation backup to avoid causing PHP to run out of memory with large backups.

13) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, Backup was not working when the PHP version of the domain was 7.2+. This is fixed now.

14) [Bug Fix] : On servers running Plesk, the PHP version selected by the user was not detected when Multi PHP option was enabled via CageFS. This is fixed now.
