I have a wee problem that I find quite irritating.
I look after a number of blogs, all running WordPress, and running on a mix of servers. On a fairly regular basis, plugins, or even the core code needs to be updated and that is fine.
My problem arises with the plugins. In order to do an automatic upgrade, I have to go into each server in turn and change permissions on the “wp-content” directory, from 755 to 777. After the upgrade, I have to remember to revert to 755 again. Failure to do this results in a message telling me that the update could not download to the temporary directory.
Is there a way around all this faffing with permissions? Is there a plugin or something that will automate the process?
It’s not exactly a critical problem, but a resolution would make life a little easier!
