    Keeping all clients' wordpress websites updated

    Hi I am making a lot of websites using wordpress for clients, the problem lies in keeping them all updated, was is the best solution for this, apart from manually logging into each client's installation when there is an update and doing it by hand? thanks

    There is no automated tool that upgrades the wordpress automatically. Moreover, you also need to upgrade the plugins once the newer versions are released.

    Someone should develop one tool for upgrading the wordpress automatically.

    The upgrade script appears to be moving in that direction. A few versions back it was a separate plugin that could only upgrade WordPress itself. Then they added support for upgrading plugins as well. Then they integrated it into WordPress itself. So being able to set it to run automatically should be the next step.
