Support » Installing WordPress » Automatic upgrade bug?

  • – Saw the message: “WordPress 2.7.1 is available! Please update now.”
    – Clicked on link
    – I decided that I needed to do a backup first and not to proceed for now with the upgrade, so clicked back to site –> empty screen!!!
    – Went into /wp-admin, checked Plugins –> none!! (should be 4)

    – Panic, breathe deeply and slowly

    – Proceed with automatic upgrade –> lots of “permission denied” errors
    – CHMOD WP-CONTENT to 777
    – Proceed with automatic upgrade –> runs “forever”

    – Got tired of waiting, check Plugins –> all back, but deactivated
    – Reactivate Plugins, CHMOD WP-CONTENT back to 755, verify site –> seems OK.

    1. Is the automatic upgrade messing with the permission???
    2. What are the recommended file permissions for the various folders and files in WP?
