WordPress Version Checker

Want to check the versions of Multiple WordPress sites on your server, in one shot? At this stage I have only done a cPanel version.

I’ve combined the use of one script into identifying the out-of-date versions of WordPress only into a result such as:

root@server:# /scripts/wp-version
Account mitchatkb is running 4.5.3 - OUT OF DATE

The script identifies the cPanel accounts using out-of-date WordPress Versions. In the above example mitchatkb is using an out-of-date version.
