Problems Upgrading... (3 posts)

    I am trying to upgrade a clients website from 2.7 to 2.84 by clicking the auto upgrade. I get "Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.8.4.zip"

    But nothing else happens. It's like it's not connecting oor something...no error messages at all.

    Client is using 1&1.com hosting (whom I hate with a passion).

    It would be really inconvenient to have to do this manually, since WP is coming out with upgrades every other week it seems.

    I am experiencing the same problem with the plugins loader...is there a folders permissions I need to look at?

    In your FTP program, right-click the WP-Content directory. Click on Attributes.

    Most likely, the permissions are set to 755, as mine were.

    Change them to 705, and make sure the changes are applied to all sub-directories (BUT NOT TO THE FILES).

    My plugins and theme auto installs work fine now.

    Not sure if this will also fix the auto upgrade of WordPress, as I already upgraded it manually. Guess I'll find out on the next upgrade.
