Support » Installing WordPress » Installing manual vs script

    Soooo….I used to always install all my WordPress installs using whatever the one click scripts were available on my host. I recently switched hosts and through moving a Moodle installation I learned that one click installs are not a good idea (through some experiences I had migrating my Moodle install…problems which came from the one click script.) I now am trying to avoid the scripts, but I had already installed all my website’s WordPress installs using the new host’s one click installer.

    My question is: Is it worth uninstalling each site’s WP install and reinstalling manually, to get it away from those scripts and the issues they present? I feel like it is…and it’s bugging me now that they are all installed using those scripts…but I am wondering if I’m just going to make more work for myself…

    There’s like 4 or 5 sites, so, not a huge number. And I’m in no hurry, so I suppose I could just do it here and there as I had time…

    I just wonder if it’s worth me going to the trouble?

    I don’t think so. What issues are you having?

    I’m not having any issues. But I have read that there are security issues with the installations that use the scripts.
