Support » Installing WordPress » FTP Error: Listing directory failed message on upgrade
6 years, 7 months ago
I have been trying to upload wordpress upgrade via ftp, but continually get the error message
FTP Error: Listing directory failed
Can’t change directory to …….. No such file or directory
There are no duplicates so unsure why this is happening.
I am upgrading from 3 to 3.0.1
does anyone know what is going wrong?

I’d contact your web host. Something sounds really wrong with your ISP.
I found on some of my sites that I was unable to overwrite all of the directories and files at one time.
Try doing 1 directory at a time. Make sure you follow the “manual upgrade” directions for files/directories that need to be overwritten and those that MUST NOT be over written.
I think I tried the wp-includes directory 1st. By breaking up the upload, my upgrade went fine
Ops! Re=read your post – you’re not even getting into your directory listing. Check settings in your FTP program.
Can you still see your site when you use a browser? If you can, then your files are some where on your server. Can you access your host account by your ISP’s cpanel?
