I was wondering about wordpress updates and plugins.
Is possible to setup pagoda box to allow wordpress updates and plugin installs through wordpress?
No. The reason being that you don’t want to have PHP trying to update it’s own code. The best way is to set up a locally running copy, install there, and then upgrade from there.
I don't ever try it but I think it's possible to create folders and set them to shared. As Wordpress can upload a file, he can download new package to wp-content/update nop ?
