Automatic upgrade fails (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    automatic upgrade does not complete on my installation, I've found the following possible causes here in the forums

    - 'wordpress automatic upgrade' plugin was/is not installed
    - adding
    define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . '/wp-content/tmp/');
    in the end of my wp-config.php did not resolve the issue
    - I set the rights for the temp-folder to 777

    The upgrade process still stops with 'Unpacking the core update' but does not give any further debugging information.

    Can anyone help? Thanks for spending your time,

    Henning

    Got further and found out, that the core update will probably only work with php5 and not php4.
    I switched that to php5 and then got a memory error - but that can easily be fixed with my hosting-support.

    This

    is always interesting to see.
