If like me you run an Intranet, firewalls or proxies do not allow you to contact the API, so the only way to have your plugins up to date is to manually delete an old version of a plugin before uploading the new version of it. Plugpdater eases this process by uploading the plugin in a temp directory, checking for errors, and if none were found replacing the old version by the new one. As the plugin will write and replace files in /wp-content/uploads and /wp-content/plugins, make sure apache user has sufficient rights to do it.

  • Important : this plugin needs to be tested on a testing environment before using it on a production environment.
