Upgrade plugins from Dashboard error message WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi Guys

I get this error message when trying to upgrade plugins from within the WP dashboard.

http://screencast.com/t/AvwKfg1IeDD

I have checked my uploads folder permissions and they are 755

I've also reinstalled a fresh copy of wp-includes and wp-admin

Are there any other trouble shooting steps you can show me please

Could you also explain what would cause this.

Many thanks

Steve

Hey there,

this should solve this issue:


Place this in your wp-config.php

/* Setup a temporary folder for uploading and updating */
define( 'WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/tmp/') ;


But also read this topic from [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/support/topic/download-failed-destination-directory-for-file-streaming-does-not-exist-or-is-n"]]WP.org forum[[/LINK]], it should help you to understand the issue.


Thanks
