Updating multiple installs (5 posts)

    I am running multiple sites based on wordpress on shared webhost. Recently I got hacked and warned by my webhost bcos one of my WP site running old version of WP had been hacked and spam sent using that site.

    The problem is you have to update each WP install manually. Sometimes, there are sites which are less important and you tend to forget to update them. Is there any way/plugin that will allow updating multiple installs of WP without visiting each WP site and updating manually?

    There's a plugin known as ManageWP but i am not sure do they still offer the free version or not.

    thats paid and costly.
    Any other option ? I am sure many of the people here wud be having dozens of WP sites. Are they mostly managing/updating these sites manually ?

    If there is no such plugin I am sure a simple PHP script can be developed that individual admins can install on their servers. The features could involve :
    - adding admin login details of the varius WP installs
    - showing the version status of each WP install and the WP update available
    - Showing the plugin and theme updates available
    - Option to click and update WP, plugin and themes
    - could be extended to showing and approving comments

    - adding admin login details of the varius WP installs

    This may become a security concern.

    - showing the version status of each WP install and the WP update available

    Use Securi to check your sites (it will show if hacked and what version of WP is installed and if that needs updating)
    As for the rest, one does need to maintain their sites they host.
