the latest script: drupalUpdate.sh

I recently added the script drupalUpdate.sh to my Drupal Script Library.  This script will update a site completely from the command line.  It calls drupalCVSDeploy.sh to update the site then calls the drush update command to update the database.

The script will also allow you to copy your site to a holding/dev domain, update it there, check it out, and then either allow or deny the update on the original site.  This provides a simple way to determine if an update breaks your site.

As soon as I have a good way to compare web pages, I'll update the script to compare the two sites (the original and the updated development copy) to decided whether to allow the update or not.

Note, the drupalCVSDeploy.sh script mentioned in this post has been renamed to drupalGitDeploy.sh.  Read more in my post on converting the Drupal Script Library to use Git.
