I'm having trouble upgrading from 2.8.4 to 2.8.5 in the same way that i have had trouble installing plugins without FTPing them. I click the "Install" button, and it brings me to an install page, but it freezes on:
Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.8.5.zip.
Or when I try to install a plugin, it freezes on:
Downloading install package from......
And other times:
Downloading install package from.....
Unpacking the package.
Looking into my folders now, I see that the zip files are being placed into the wp-content folder, but they are empty, and obviously not being executed.
