  • I am having this same issue with this same plugin. Also having it with others.

    Just installed that plugin with these messages returned:

    Downloading plugin package from
    Unpacking the plugin package
    Installing the plugin
    Successfully installed the plugin Contact Form 7 1.9.

    wp-content, wp-content/upgrade, and wp-content/plugins have 755 on my server.

    tried it a few times again today.. no i get this error:
    connect() timed out.. then name server not found? it could be that 2.7 is getting so much download,s its hogging the server 🙂

    just have to try again..

    Hi I am getting the following message on all of my plugin updates
    Download failed.: connect() timed out!

    I cannot delete the four TTF files in the Gentium directory.

    Hence I cannot update the plugin manually after the auto upgrade failed as above.
