Automatic Plugin and Theme Upgrade Fails
|Reported by:||Adeptris||Owned by:|
I did do a search and found this, but it was from 8 months ago.
I have had this issue as well as another forum topic authors, I was not sure at first if it was just something with Windows server or WordPress, but others are reporting the same thing.
I have had this when updating two plugins and the twenty eleven theme.
This is what happened in my case, the plugins 'include' folder and the themes 'inc' were not deleted, could this be because a script in the folder was in use on the admin page?
When I upgraded the twenty eleven theme from admin then I am using the files in the /inc/ folder.
When the update tries to copy the files access to the include folder is denied.
Using FileZilla the folder still exists but will not delete or rename.
The file could also be seen in the ISP control panel File Manager, and could not be accessed, renamed or deleted, although file permissions are correct.
A manual transfer of files and it looks like a file cannot be replaced and causes this problem.
I have to wait 30 minutes for error to clear and the folder to dissapear, so I am not sure if it is a WordPress or Windows server problem.
An error occurred while updating WordPress Importer: Could not create directory. D:/digitalraindrops.net/wwwroot/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-importer/
I have been using the auto upgrade for the last two years, my ISP has said nothing has changed on the server and the upgrade should work!
