WordPress version check | Blog of Leonid Mamchenkov

With all the news of brute force attacks against WordPress, I thought I’d at least update the installations running on my servers.  Since there are quite a few instances of WordPress on some of them, I was in need of some automated way to check the installed version, hence – the WordPress version check script.

I have some really old versions that I wouldn’t update automatically, so that functionality is not in the script yet (hopefully in the future). But as they say, knowing the problem is half of the solution or something like that.

If you don’t like mine, build your own, using WordPress.org API.
