WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin

This is a must-have for WordPress installations:

WordPress Automatic Upgrade is a plugin that automatically upgrades your wordpress version to the latest files provided by wordpress.org using the 5 steps provided in the wordpress upgrade instructions.

WPAU as I call it helps you easily upgrading you to easily upgrade your wordpress installation to the latest version provided by wordpress, without having to download or upload any files.

I just discovered it when I was having problems with my 2.5.1 installation – it’s linked from the WordPress.org instructions for upgrading. It’s also a good idea to check if you’ve been hacked . The older versions have a vulnerability that allows exposure of admin passwords and such.

  1. My favorite strategy to upgrade is to upload the new files, copy the config files and user uploads over, then just rename the web directory and log in and have WP do the db upgrade. However the plugin does look pretty neat.
