    My site was running fine with the e-commerce plugin. I'm not sure what I have done but all of a sudden if I try to install plugins or themes I'm getting a message like :
    Could not create directory. /home/trademap/public_html/wp-content/upgrade/neuro.tmp

    What have I done?

    Try downloading the plugins and themes and installing it manually.

    There are some guides on wordpress.org that can guide you.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the advice. Any idea why this should suddenly happen after all working fine.

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
