Configure where downloaded upgrades are unzipped to

  1. natesymer

    I'd like to be able to change where zip archives that represent updates to WP Core, Plugins, and themes are unzipped to. Similar to how you can configure where your plugin and theme directories are.

    wp-content/upgrade is in the middle of the web root. Why not use /tmp?

    I understand WordPress developers want to keep the directory where it is b/c it forces wp-content/ to be created. But why not just create wp-content/ in that case?

    You can use defines for that right now:

    define('WP_CONTENT_DIR', 'your-dir');
    define('WP_CONTENT_URL', 'your-url');

    Of course that would do uploads as well. the issue, IIRC is that not all web hosts have /tmp/ (I know, I know).
