I’ve seen this reported a number of times, always with a temporary solution. I’m curious as to whether there is a more permanent fix.
Basically, when trying to do an automatic plugin update (or an automatic update of WordPress itself) I get the error…
Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/[plugin name]. Unpacking the package. Could not copy file /public_html/wp-content/upgrade/[plugin folder and file]
Obviously, I’ve removed the name of the specific plugin above, as it’s not really relevent.
The temporary solution is for me to go to the upgrade folder and change the folder permissions to 777. This then works. As soon as I try to upgrade another plugin however, it fails and I have to do the same again.
Are there any solutions to this one?
