I am in the process of updating manually, however this is quite time consuming.
I have a number of clients sites that require upgrading to Akeeba Backup 2.4.2. I have Watchful.li installed on my other sites, is it possible to use the updater via Watchful.li to select the akeebabackupwp-2.4.2-pro.zip and install it remotely on the website? I'm not sure about using this method, as I know Wordpress treats the "installation" of a plugin when the plugin already exists as a second installation, whereas Joomla would know it is an upgrade to the plugin.
I was just wondering whether this would be an option that would save time. If you know of anyone that has used this method successfully can you let me know?
