Support » Fixing WordPress » Plugin automatic upgrade errors

  • (Sorry for *another* plugin upgrade problem, but mine didn’t seem to be the same as other.)

    I can’t upgrade plugins automatically.
    I get a whole list of errors that seemed to suggest to me that there was a permissions problem (unable to create file). The address paths were for wp-includes so I changed the permissions there to 757, but still got the same errors.
    Screenshot of the errors.

    Any help would be appreciated!

  • Bump 😉

    I’ve got the same problem 🙁

    Yeah… I’m going to upgrade to 2.5.1 sometime soon, maybe if I do it with the right permissions it will work. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Ok, I upgraded to 2.5.1 – absolutely no change. Still getting an ass load of errors.

    Is it a chmod problem? I currently have them at 775. Is the server allowed to be in safe-mode? Does it need to be able to access the tmp directory?

    Please help, I can’t find any documentation on this feature.

    Always open questions but very few answers on the WP forums.

    I get this little bugger when trying to upgrade plugins now.

    Warning: ftp_rawlist() [function.ftp-rawlist]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp) is not within the allowed path(s)

    I’ve been getting the same error. I beleive it has something to do with the open_basedir option not being enabled on the server. If you run a server yourself you should turn this option on, or contact your hosting provider. Mine won’t enable it for me 🙁

    Good luck anyway. If anyone has a better solution please post 🙂
