Due to installing wp through click and build I'm unable to upgrade wp due to permissions being locked.
Exact same issue as shaun in this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-auto-update?replies=4
'Because wordpress was installed via 1&1, all of the files were locked. I had to manually reinstall WP to make the changes.'
I'm looking for some guidance (tips) on the best way to approach doing this as It seems like a difficult task and I don't want to mess it up? 1&1 aren't the most forthcoming of people to deal with..
Any help or pointers would be appreciated :)
