I did and wish I didn't :(
I updated the first site everything went fine. I updated the second site and the theme i was using went all over the place.
I have no idea why?
Gonna wait and see what the person working on it has to say before I update any more.
Also the your site Top left is gone!!!
Have now updated 5 blogs with no problem.
I download and uncompress latest.zip into /usr/local/www/data/wordpress/, then I run this shell script from the directory above all my web sites (/usr/local/www/data/):
After a good deal of disk drive activity I have 1,496 upgraded Wordpress installations.
if [ -d wordpress/wp-content ]
rm -rf wordpress/wp-content
if [ -f wordpress/wp-config.php ]
rm -f wordpress/wp-config.php
# use find command to get all first-level subdirectories containing Wordpress
BLOGS=$(ls */wp-config.php | grep -v $(ls -d */wordpress-mu | cut -f1 -d'/') | cut -f1 -d'/')
for b in $BLOGS
cp -R wordpress/* $b/
I've just gone through and updated all my blogs. Pretty easy from 3.0.3 - short and sweet. Always pays to keep on top of these things.
Nice one - Will. Very simple scripts, thanks for the share.

just wanted to ask will, how to run that bash script in my hosting if i update?
although i somehow understand what the script will do, i'm still unure how to run it in my hosting :D
or do i need to have a dedicated server?
It would really only make sense on a dedicated host or a virtual host.

You would also want to edit it to have the correct path for your websites. Mine are stored in /usr/local/www/data/ -- yours may not be.
