I hate updating wordpress. It takes time and I need to be (slightly) carefull of what I do – I’ve already set up stuff once, I’d really hate to have to do it all over again. So I started for an automatic tool that would do this for me and would run within the confines of a go daddy hosted account.
Fortunatelly someone else had the same problem, and so I’ve found the Instant Upgrade plugin (google search for it). It only took me 5 minutes to set up (partly thanks to FileZilla’s recursive permission changer) and then I’ve simply activated and clicked a large button. In about 5 minutes it was all over and I’m up-to-date with my wordpress. And if it weren’t for that annoying text poping up that I need to upgrade I wouldn’t have done it.
