A simple PHP script that automatically downloads and unzips the latest version of Wordpress in the current directory (./), so that I don't have to download it and upload it to my server through FTP manually.
<?php
echo '<pre>';
echo '<span style="color:blue">DOWNLOADING...</span>'.PHP_EOL;
// Download file
file_put_contents('wp.zip', file_get_contents('http://wordpress.org/latest.zip'));
$zip = new ZipArchive();
$res = $zip->open('wp.zip');
if ($res === TRUE) {
// Extract ZIP file
$zip->extractTo('./');
$zip->close();
unlink('wp.zip');
// Copy files from wordpress dir to current dir
$files = find_all_files("wordpress");
$source = "wordpress/";
foreach ($files as $file) {
$file = substr($file, strlen("wordpress/"));
if (in_array($file, array(".",".."))) continue;
if (!is_dir($source.$file)){
echo '[FILE] '.$source.$file .' -> '.$file . PHP_EOL;
rename($source.$file, $file);
}else{
echo '[DIR] '.$file . PHP_EOL;
@mkdir($file);
}
}
// Remove wordpress dir
foreach ($files as $file) {
if (in_array($file, array(".",".."))) continue;
if (is_dir($file)){
echo '[REM] '.$file . PHP_EOL;
@rmdir($file);
}
}
@rmdir('./wordpress');
// Check if copy was successful
if(file_exists('index.php')){
// Redirect to WP installation page
echo '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=index.php" />';
}else{
echo 'Oops, that didn\'t work...';
}
} else {
echo 'Oops, that didn\'t work...';
}
function find_all_files($dir) {
$root = scandir($dir);
foreach($root as $value) {
if($value === '.' || $value === '..') {continue;}
$result[]="$dir/$value";
if(is_file("$dir/$value")) {continue;}
foreach(find_all_files("$dir/$value") as $value)

$result[]=$value;

return $result;

?>
