Today was trying to upgrade my wordpress and it was failing with the following error
Could not copy file.: /public_html
As per the wordpress , it was due the pure-ftpd server and the suggestion was to switch over to Proftpd.
I have contacted my support and the reply was like ” it is not possible to change default configuration of ftp on shared server “
So I have decided to dig in this issue and found a nice word press plugin , which will help you to fix the bug with pure-ftpd
FTP Upgrade Fix
I tried to install this plugin , but got the same error. So i have removed the folder ” upgrade ” (wp-content == > upgrade ) and recreate the same with 777 permision.
This time i was able to install this plugin successfully .
Yes, its a nice one . After that I did the upgrade with in seconds !!!!!
Hope this will help you once you stuck with your wordpress upgrade 😉
