➽ Notes:

  It processes plugins/themes in batches, to avoid server timeouts. 

  can run it from wp-cli.

  most efficient to run on a copy of website on your local,
  and/or from wp-cli.

.........................
timeouts:

  Can sometimes skip big files due to server timeout.
  Run it on your local and/or from wp-cli to mitigate this.

problems:

  sometimes does not detect php version needed for a plugin, etc.

	I think ultimately a plugin like this is always going to
	be hard to maintain and make sure that your site is safe.
	The only real way is to make a 2nd copy of the site and
	test it thoroughly.
	I found detailed info on differences and upgrade procedures
	listed here www.php.net/manual/en/appendices.php
	I also keep myself updated on the latest php versions via
	www.updatephp.com
