  • windows hosting on godaddy will always give you these problems
    you can switch to a linux server for free

    But what if you cannot switch to Linux? I own a windows box that I use to host multiple sites. I have this exact same issue with my WP install. I can manually install something by FTPing in myself and moving the files over, but going through the WP_admin would be ideal.

    This also plages the Plugin installation for me as well. Is there anything I can try to make it work?
