Pre WP 3.0 installation I had no problems with automatically updating plugins. However, now it doesn't work.
If I use the update option under the Dashboard menu, then maintenance mode is activated but it hangs (with spinning icon) on updating the plugin.
If I go to plugins and, against the specific plugin, select the automatic upgrade option then it displays...
Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/si-captcha-for-wordpress.zip…
And stops at that. If I type the above URL into my address bar it downloads without an issue.
Does anybody have a solution for this?
