Thanks for sharing that.

Initially I put a few of my WordPress installations in svn like Mark
recommends and installed them on the server by checking them out. Then I
used the admin interface to upgrade and it corrupted my svn working copy
so I couldn't check the changes back in to svn.

Also on another attempt one of my users used the admin tool to change
his theme and the files got out of sync with the repo then too.

So now I have a bunch of WordPress installations that initially were in
svn and are now just corrupt and useless svn working copies.

If you check your WordPress installation into a VCS what is the
recommended strategy for upgrading it? Can you disable administrative
functions such as in-browser upgrades, installing themes, upgrading
plugins, etc. in the config file somehow? Is that what you're supposed
to do?
