WordPress, the online blogging and CMS solution for many web practitioners, released automatic updates as part of its feature set for the 3.0 branch. But is giving a script access to change itself really such a good thing?
I’ve used WordPress for a couple of years now. It’s slowly becoming less focused on blog posts, and becoming more of a content management system/framework. I’ve heard many web developers using WordPress with client sites, and have also had clients requesting WordPress as their system backend.
One hassle of web applications is installing, and keeping them up-to-date. Self hosted Web Applications like WordPress aren’t as easy to update like you would with your anti-virus definitions. It’s not like you can just click one button, and have the newest WordPress update installed onto your server.Tweet
