I need some suggestions. I'm trying to upgrade to 3.0.1 from 3.0 automatically, and the upgrade keeps failing. Sometimes it says "Cannot create directory /public_html," and I found the thread that suggested removing wp-content/upgrade and recreating it. That does make that problem go away, but there are still other errors showing up, like " Could not copy file.: /public_html/b/wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css". I don't see why it can't copy it:
root@omega [/home/spice/www/b]# ls wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css -lah -rwxrwxrwx 1 spice nobody 969 Jul 17 11:31 wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css*
What's going on here? I am chmod 777 -R /home/spice/www/b before every upgrade attempt. My permissions are as wide open as they can be.
