    Hello there,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Can you please temporarily chmod the /wp-content directory to 777 with ftp client or host's file manager, do the upgrade, then chmod back to 755 ?

    Please advise if that works.

    PS : Please ensure that you take a backup of the entire site before you try the upgrade.

    hey -- I found the problem --- out of space on the server allocation --

    so I need to reload all the themes and plugins --

    cause I did a stupid thing -- I did a 777 recursive on wp_content -- not thinking about plugins and themes --

    so I am going to delete them --- increase space -- and then re-install themes and plugins --

    thanks - sorry for my mistake ----
