    I keep getting the same error on the auto upgrade:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction() (previously declared in /home/XXXX/public_html/XXXX/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/lib/pclzip.lib.php:5421) in /home/XXXX/public_html/XXXX/wp-admin/includes/class-pclzip.php on line 5498

    I'm not a developer. What do I need to do to fix this without having to do a manual install?

    I, and it appears, many others are getting the same type of error message and even doing the following suggestion locked me out of my WP install altogether:

    Question: How do I upgrade automatically from WordPress 2.7 to the newer versions coming out (ie: 2.7.1)?

    Answer: Upgrades are built in starting with 2.7 and up. Tools->Upgrade.

    Make sure you Create the /wp-content/upgrade directory (it was not present), set permissions to 777, then update the permissions in wp-content/plugins to 777 as well. Finally, I emptied /wp-content/cache - and plugins are now updating successfully.

    Well, I tried all of that and every time I did I was unable to get back into WP so I changed the permissions back and things were normal again, although upgrading automatically seems an impossibility at this point.

    Why is this such a kludge? I long for an update to Keith's fabulous automatic update plug-in.

    that error message is caused by the upgrade plugin still being there -- its not needed, and needs to be deleted.

    Thanks whooami...that did the trick and the upgrade functioned properly. I suppose I should have thought of that but up until today I still thought that Keith Dsouza's plug-in was still functional in the 2.7 releases. So many people have that plug-in sitting there that the 'powers that be' may want to post a little note on the 'auto upgrade' reminding folks to deactivate that older plug-in.

    Again, thanks...

    That only attests to the fact that I check in here so seldom because WP tends to run so well. I'll have to make more visits in the future. Then I'm unlikely to miss the sticky notes, eh?
