WordPress Automatic Update Plugin…Painless!

August 5th, 2007 by xformed

In case you didn’t catch the announcement last month on your WP Dashboard, the WPAU plugin is out.

Took me about 2 minutes to move from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 (out today to fix some security issues). That sure is a lot less than the all morning long sessions I have had before coming to the 2.X then 2.1.X and finally the 2.2.1 version, making sure I didn’t lose anything.
Besides having to download two generated backup files, there was one plugin that didn’t reactivate in the process, so I did it manually.

Highly recommended!

Update 8/08/2007:  I found two other plugins I had activated that didn’t come back on using the automatic update.  Recommendation:  Scan your plugin list for ones not coming back on.

    Thanks for the heads-up — one of the aaspects of WP I’ve been less than pleased with thus far is the labor-intensive back-up/up-date process. I’ll give this a try tonight…
