No automatic plugin update since 2.8, even at 2.8.1 (7 posts)

    Hi,
    I'm using 2.8.1 , and since 2.8 there is no automatic plugin update possible. I run also a 2.8 .
    Always get the following message "the folder example.com/wp-content/plugins/updatedplugin could not be written". All chmod are correct at 755 , but 777 also didn't work.
    It's also not a *.zip-problem, as I found that the unpacked new plug is always in a new folder"upgrade" in the wp-content folder.

    Any advices or recommendations to this point? Thanks in advance,

    sjoeberg

    Yes, I also get this problem.

    But if a retry a couple dozen of times, it eventually works, I think maybe some servers are overworked... I dunno...

    I'm afraid that also after several retrys the problem is still alive and my server is in fact not overworked ... but it seems that not many english blogs have the problem ... in Germany there's a lot more trouble with this... but also no solution.

    It's really frustrating to see that there is no interest /advice / help to this point.

    I would be glad only to know that it will be fixed in 2.8.2 ...

    I've use automatic plugin update just fine for WordPress 2.8, 2.8.1 and 2.8.2.

    What I have found, just now, upgrading WordPress itself to 2.8.2 using automatic update, was that I could upgrade one blog only. The next blog would get stuck trying to upgrade. However, when I returned an hour later, it worked for the second. I'm hoping it will work for the others too pretty soon.
