I've been handed a WP Networks site that is running WP (Networks) 3.5.1 on RHEL 5.8 with about 40 sites attached to it. I see the need to update to 3.8.
By background, I'm more familiar with maintaining Drupal sites with
Drush. My first hunch here is to use
wp-cli to run the update.
Is this the preferred update method in the WP community or am I better swapping out php files from the tar ball? That is, can I depend on
wp-cli to run a clean update from 3.5.1 to 3.8?
