Wordpress permissions

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by dlature, Apr 21, 2012.

  1. I noticed that now I cannot upgrade my plugins using the Wordpress auto-install ....I get a permissions error saying I cannot write to the directory, and the install aborts after saving a back up copy of the plugin directory. I have to manually move the plugin directory back into the plugins directory under /wp-content. What has changed in the directories under which Worpdress is installed? I successfully upgraded the wordpress version from 3.3 to 3.3.1, using the Wordpress dashboard upgrade, but Plugins fail .

    It might be possible that the web application "Wordpress" is using the directory while trying to upgrade the plugin. You can try two things

    First in the Plug-In section from within Wordpress. Try to disable the Plug-In. Now try to upgrade it and see if that works.

    If that still does not work try to recycle your web application from within your control panel Here (Make sure the plug-in is still disabled)

    Now try to upgrade the plug-in.

    I hope this helps :)
