cPAddon for WP for cPanel One-Click Install
To make installations and upgrades of WordPress easier within a cPanel/WHM environment, consider creating a cPAddon for WordPress. This way when the WordPress team releases a critical fix or upgrade, users can automatically be notified of such an upgrade and simply click a button within their control panel to upgrade. In the case of system administration, a sysAdmin can force an upgrade using the cPAddons framework.
cPanel, Inc is no longer maintaining the cPAddon for WordPress and it would be great if the WordPress team would coordinate the creation of an official WordPress cPAddon for cPanel/WHM.
Interest in this idea has been expressed on the cPanel community forums, specifically this thread:

This would be a fantastic addition! Cpanel is great because I can provide things like wordpress to all of my users, it is also a problem because while it gives me a central point to install/update them, I can't get them the latest versions which sticks me with one of two security nightmeres.
1. users install and patch their own systems
* it is rare they update after it works unless there is a feature they want
* I end up finding and updating all of them on my own
2. I am stuck with an automated way to update and install but old software that is buggy.
* currently users are stuck on 2.0.x which is way way old!
Please help! I'm happy to provide a place to test!
I think this Addon would be such a useful tool for us Fantastico users. I urge the powers that be at WordPress to give this active consideration. Thanks
An automatic upgrades process was added to WordPress in version 2.7 (within the WP administration pages). This would effectively take care of the cPanel APAddon request as well as other site management software that is not compatible with cPanel.
