Upgrading WordPress via the Shell
I put this here, because I think it follows on nicely – if you fear the shell (and you shouldn’t), this takes away a lot of the cruft and just gives you the commands…..all 8 of them.
The instructions assume that your web server runs Linux – and if it doesn’t, why not? – but the commands are easily adjustable for Windows. Apart from number 1, you need the Windows shell tools for that. Hope this helps you with your own upgardes. I already did mine 😆
