  • Do you mean that it’s saying that it fails to upload to the “upgrade” folder? or more specifically:

    Unable to create directory …/wp-content/upgrade/social-media-widget.tmp

    or something like that?

    Make sure you have write access to wp-content/upgrade. (Make it chmod 777 when you’re installing plugins, then change it back to 755 when you’re done for security purposes)

    When you install plugins through the WP Admin panel, it downloads the file to the server, then it unpacks it to wp-content/upgrade. Then it moves it to your plugins directory. It will fail out if Apache (or your server account) cannot write to that directory, it will fail out of the install (or upgrade).

    If this doesn’t make sense, let me know.
