    What are you guys using to make multiple wordpress blog installs without having to manually ftp the files up there?

    I can't use the 1 click installs most hosts have because I'm using wordpress 2.6

    My shell access doesn't allow me into the www directory for some reason

    I don't have cpanel so wpmanagerdx is out

    I can't use php to unzip because the host hasn't added the unzip module (or some error like that)

    All I really need is some way of getting a .zip up there quickly and getting it uncompressed somehow.

    Ideas?

    #1: Get new host.

    Yeah the only way is to get a new host because you are stuck unless you upload the files already unzipped

    i usally use wp auto installer from mass automation, it now has support for webmin, if you dont have cpanel, or if you dont have any of that, i would just run a shell script from your server, i have one called makeblog, which i just go into the directory and run it and it grabs the latest release, then i just goto the url to install.
