Support » Installing WordPress » WordPress on Windows 2008 R2 IIS "Download failed.: Destination director..

  • Hello everyone. I’m running WordPress on my Windows 2008 R2 Server. I’ve run into the same issues that others have reported here with the inability to auto update WordPress, Plugins, or Themes. I get the error Download failed.: Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable. I noticed that in the upgrade instructions for 3.5.1 it talks about a bug in IIS 7(Doesn’t list what the bug is) not allowing you to update automatically. I’ve read as many of the support posts that i’ve found on here related to the problem being a permissions issue. I’ve done all of the recommendations and still have the problem. I was wondering if this was on the plate as a TO BE FIXED in an upcoming release(some report this started with version 3.5). It really takes away from the simplicity and ease of use when you cannot update via the admin console. I’m not sure if the reason I can’t find a fix is because i’m running R2 or what.

    If anyone has a fix that they can share or an update as to whether this is being worked on would be VERY much appreciated:-)
