Again, i have this problem.
Safe_mode is on and it is not an option to turn it off, and dont tell me it must be off because i know wordpress supports it.
i get the following:
Could not create directory.: /var/www/vhosts/mysite.com/httpdocs/wp-content/upgrade/wordpress-3.tmp
if i manually create the document that wordpress is trying to create (and chmods it 777), the message changes so that it applies to a subfolder. This tells me that it is having trouble creating a directory even though the permissions are set to 777, so basic permissions is not the issue here. i suspect that this has to do with the restrictions and users on the webservers, is there a proper workaround? preferably with an explanation as to why the problem exists in the first place..
I am so sick and tired of problems like this, forums are FULL of similar issues and no-one gets an answer besides chmod 777 this and that.
yes, i know a lot of people have basic permission problems and that fixes it for them, but this is not the case here. or.. atleast chmod 777 on certain directories will not make a difference. believe me, I have tried it. this is something else. Why wont WordPress development acknowledge the issue?! or maybe just make a module that verifies permissions in the filesystem so that all of those struggling with this can stop wasting their and developers time on stuff like this..
