in my experience I’ve encountered a few hosting where, for various reasons, the automated upgrade between different versions of WordPress didn’t work so I started thinking about a way to safely upgrade WordPress uploading only new/changed files..
What I came up with is a bash script (I have only GNU/Linux systems) that makes a checkout from svn for the 2 versions of WordPress (old and new one), and then makes a diff between them to show only the added/removed/changed files…
As of now it just outputs a list which has to be manually reviewed, but I’m trying to find a way to automate the whole process…
What I wanted to ask is if I am somehow reinventing the wheel.. has somebody already written something like this? Am I the only one who feels the need for a script like this??
Please, let me know 😉
