WordPress upgrade script

I just upgraded Janene’s and my blog to the latest version of WordPress using a slick bash script created by one of my buddies, Aaron Toponce. If you’ve never upgraded WordPress before, I’d recommend doing it by hand at least once so you understand the process (instructions are here), but if you’re looking for something to automagically upgrade your blog with minimal fuss, check out the script on Aaron’s blog: WordPress Upgrade Script. Worked like a charm for both the blogs I used it on, and I’ll definitely continue using it in the future. Good work, Aaron! :syzygy:

  • Thanks Joey! It was actually a fairly easy script to write, but there are more things to add to it, I think. It’s definitely helped me upgrade my installs.

    I haven’t tried it yet, but the InstantUpgrade plugin looks interesting as well.
