Any web host does automatic upgrades? (5 posts)

    I signed up with a web host and installed WordPress using Fantastico. But Fantastico installs an out-of-date version of WordPress. Worse, when I tried to add RSS feeds, one of the feeds didn't work but showed my username and directory instead! And my web host won't help me upgrade. I will have to do it myself. But I have no technical skills. Is there any web host that does automatic upgrades? Does Dreamhost or Living Dot do automatic upgrades? I read about the WordPress plug-in that does automatic upgrades but I don't want to take chances because if it doesn't work, I will have to reinstall WordPress myself.

    Take a look at this offering:

    That's run by Moshu (one of the moderator's in these Forums) and he'll take care of the technical stuff for you.

    You can also try using the WordPress Automatic Upgrades plugin by Keith Dsouza. It works for most WordPress type folks. If it doesn't it's probably the PHP version your host is running (works with PHP 4.4.7, 5.2.4, and 5.2.5 in my personal experience). Otherwise Moshu can definitely help you out.

    DreamHost provides automatic upgrades (you have to click on a link to initiate the upgrade).
