    I tried to update to the latest version of WP, and I got this error message:

    "Could not create directory.: /home/fourlegg/public_html/wp-content/upgrade/wordpress-3.tmp

    Installation Failed"

    What does that mean and how do I fix it?

    Thanks so much,
    Vicki

    First, review what the correct permissions should be, then contact host and ask them if WordPress can write to this folder...

    If they are a good host they will know how to help you.

    Due to the great variety of hosting environments, we cannot be any more specific.

    Also, if an automatic update failed, you will need to perform a manual update.

    Okay, I will call my host. They've been really good in the past.

    Thanks for your help.
