I did a manual upgrade of my wordpress blog to WP 3. I tried using the automatic update though i couldn't find it. After a few here and there's, i noticed that a couple of plugins needed to get updated. So i tried the automatic update. It keeps telling me that it can't create the directory. Downloading the file works fine, but nothing beyond that. I have triplechecked and safe mode is OFF.
I'm only using wordpress stats plugin to keep track of how many visitors i have, but nothing else.
Any idea on what end to start pulling the strings to get this working?
