CLI

Dit dus. En ja: Alle commando's twee keer. Doe maar.

wp plugin update --all && wp theme update --all && wp core update && wp plugin update --all && wp theme update --all && wp core update
  • Is wp theme update --all misschien tricky, zoals bij Drupal? We gaan het meemaken ;)
  • Dit werkt niet voor betaalde plugins. Oplossing: Uploaden op m'n media-domein en een eigen update-script voor gebruiken.

GUI

  • Forceer direct download
  • Zorg dat de map- & bestandsrechten correct zijn geconfigureerd

Force direct download

Om één of andere reden, will WordPress updates per se middels FTP downloaden. Dat kun je gelukkig aanpassen [1]:

WordPress will only prompt you for your FTP connection information while trying to install 
plugins or a WordPress update if it cannot write to /wp-content directly. Otherwise, if your 
web server has write access to the necessary files, it will take care of the updates and 
installation automatically. This method does not require you to have FTP/SFTP or SSH access, 
but it does require your to have specific file permissions set up on your webserver.

It will try various methods in order, and fall back on FTP if Direct and SSH methods are 
unavailable.

WordPress will try to write a temporary file to your /wp-content directory. If this succeeds,
it compares the ownership of the file with its own uid, and if there is a match it will allow 
you to use the 'direct' method of installing plugins, themes, or updates.

Now, if for some reason you do not want to rely on the automatic check for which filesystem
method to use, you can define a constant, 'FS_METHOD' in your wp-config.php file, that is 
either 'direct', 'ssh', 'ftpext' or 'ftpsockets' and it will use that method. Keep in mind 
that if you set this to 'direct', but your web user (the username under which your web server 
runs) does not have proper write permissions, you will receive an error.

In summary, if you do not want to (or you cannot) change permissions on wp-content so your 
web server has write permissions, then add this to your wp-config.php file:

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');
