The updating & upgrading process in Vanilla is currently a manual one. We are working to make this an automated process where both the core files, as well as "approved" add-ons can be updated through a button click.
In the meantime, you will need to download the files from VanillaForums.org and upload / replace them yourself. Upgrade instructions can be found here:
Vanilla automatically "phones home" for updates if you visit your dashboard and it has been more than a day since it last checked. This way we can notify you of important updates and changes to both your core installation, and any addons you have installed. If you want to disable this update check, place the following in your conf/config.php file:
$Configuration['Garden']['UpdateCheckDate'] = 1603117442; $Configuration['Garden']['NoUpdateCheck'] = TRUE;
