When I try to automatically install updates to Wordpress or plugins, I receive an error:
An error occurred while updating... Could not create directory .../wp-content/upgrade/...
My web host runs an Apache environment, and other Wordpress websites I own don't have this problem. I have CHMOD the /wp-content/upgrade folder to both 777 and 2777, without any change in the error message.
I have installed the Core Control plugin, and the Filesystem Access module says the only error is that SSH2 is not available, but this is not required for automatic updates.
How do I perform the command:
chown www-data:www-data /path/to/wp-content/ -R
from a Windows machine? Is it telnet, or putty? What commands do I use to login? Thanks.
