Aaron gave me a great suggestion for the WordPress MU update script: pull the latest version directly from the download page. So I’ve added that as an alternative method. If no specific version is passed in, the script will pull down the latest, determine what version it is and check to see if it already exists before continuing with the installation (upgrade-wordpress-mu.sh).
I haven’t actually had the chance to fully run it through its paces yet, so we’ll see for sure when the next update is released.
I’m happy to report that I just had the chance to test my WordPress MU upgrade script, and everything went off without a hitch! One simple command and all of my blogs got the update to 2.6.5. Glory be!
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m really bad about upgrading my WordPress MU install in a timely manner. And that’s a pretty big disservice, especially for others (like my brother) hosted on the same install. So tonight, I put together a new directory structure for my WPMU installation, and with my brother’s help, wrote a wonderful little shell script to handle future upgrades for me.
Originally, I had WordPress MU file sitting in a WPMU directory.
While talking to my brother today about my American Express card, I ran across something in their frequently asked questions that I’ve been trying to find:
What if a merchant does not accept my American Express Card? To report incidences where merchants do not accept your American Express Card, please click here. American Express Customer Service will then follow up with the merchant to ensure that American Express Cards will be accepted in the future.
Here I am, attempting pretending to get some work done, when a video ad at the bottom of my MSN “Windows Live” Messenger window distracts me. It’s one of those creepy fake webcam ads for a dating site, and they always find some way to bother me. This one, apparently, hadn’t been designed for smaller windows, because this is what I saw:
See more sin? Sign me up for that! But alas, it wasn’t to be.
Time Warner pushed new software onto my DVR this morning. This is what wound up in their comment form:
Please consider the following: when you force your customers to “upgrade” the software on their leased equipment, the new software should, at the very least, offer the same features as the previous software. I would suggest that Time Warner allow its developers to use a box running Aptiv’s Passport Echo software.
