Managing the update process for a large number of sites

Hi everyone,

This isn’t necessarily a Roots specific question but more of a general question with how those who deal with a number of source controlled Wordpress sites manage the update process to ensure they can quickly and easily keep Wordpress core, theme and plugins updated across all of the websites. It always feels like a bit of a challenge and quite a manual process. Do you have an automated test process built into the deployment to catch common issues that could arise or do you do it manually on a site by site basis with user testing?

Hoping to open up some interesting discussions :slight_smile:

Cheers

Robin
