Just read a post from a guy who is able to set automatic WordPress upgrades inside his hosting account. Who can tell me some reasons NOT to do that??
Anyway – I’m not going to quote him directly OR mention his site because I don’t want to embarrass him but this auto-upgrade took his whole site down. My third or fourth question to him would be – how did you know your entire site was down? Did your hosting company let you know? I seriously doubt it.
There are protocols to doing any WordPress upgrade and he didn’t follow any of them!
I’m so glad none of you will be in his shoes.
