    I've been having problems with upgrading to the latest version of WordPress because whenever I try to upgrade it automatically, I keep getting this message:

    "Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.9.2.zip.

    Unpacking the update.

    Warning: copy(C:\Inetpub\vhosts\learnplaychess.net\httpdocs/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\learnplaychess.net\httpdocs\wp-admin\includes\class-wp-filesystem-direct.php on line 205
    Could not copy files.

    Installation Failed"

    I've tried doing what was suggested on this website but that didn't work either.

    Could somebody please help me?

    Assign 755 recursive permissions to wp-content directory of the blog with the help of your web hosting service provider.Which will resolve the issue.
