Update to WordPress V.3.0.4 - installation failed (5 posts)

    Tried to Update WordPress, got the following message:

    "Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.4.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Could not create directory.: /public_html
    Installation Failed"

    Using fast desktop with Windows XP Pro, and no prior problems with WordPress.

    But after this install failure happened, now I can't seem to see my Publish secton on the right of the "Edit Page" screen (although not a problem on the "Add New Post" page - Publish area appears as usual.

    I'm thinking that perhaps a successful download of V 3.0.4 WordPress could correct this situation, but need some advice to make that happen successfully.

    Thank you for any wisdom you might offer.

    DBW47 here again,

    I tried to to the autoinstall of V 3.0.4 on a second computer and it failed too, but a bit further along in the process:

    "Update WordPress
    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.4.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Verifying the unpacked files…
    Installing the latest version…
    Could not copy file.: /public_html/wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css
    Installation Failed"

    I also tried a manual download of the zip file, but could not properly open it - there was no real install guidence that I could see.

    Again, any helpful advice appreciated

    I am having the same trouble as well... Exact same error message, in fact. It apparently couldn't copy the theme-editor.dev.css file and now my site is stuck in "Maintenance Mode".

    Can someone please help? :(

    If you are using cPanel+WHM +Pure-ftpd, try switching to Proftp.

    to get out of Maintenance Mode log in ftp or server and select to to see hidden files and you will see .maintenance along wit .htaccess file delete .maintenance file that will let you log in again

    Ty and update manually
