Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgrade problem

  • Hi There!
    I tried to upgrade newly installed WP on my new addon domain name. I use automatic upgrade plugin and in the middle of upgrading it gives this worning:
    Warning: copy(/home/plenty07/public_html/Best-IM-Tools/index.php) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/plenty07/public_html/Best-IM-Tools/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wpau_upgrade.class.php on line 323
    We could not complete the upgrade please try again later, click here to check the logs.

    Any one knows what is the problem and how I should correct it?
    Thanks,
    Vad

    you handle it by doing the upgrade the same way countless other ppl have done it — the regular way.

    if you want help with the plugin, go ask the plugin author.

    whooami – you’re a dick

    vad111 – I had the same problem. I chmod the file giving me an error to 777. You might try doing a chmod to 755 or 777 and see if that works or contact your hosting company if you have managed hosting.

    for others that may still have this problem, I had to create an index.php.wpau.bak file in the wordpress root folder and 777 it first. It worked after that with no problems. For some reason it couldn’t create the file but it could edit it. My folders were temp at 777 too.
