Urgent WordPress Automatic Upgrade Update
By on March 29th, 2008

To all those who are using WordPress Automatic Upgrade and may have upgraded to WordPress 2.5 there is a bug which was reported earlier which breaks automatic plugin updates which is a feature in WordPress 2.5.

This feature breaks because of a library we used to handle zip files which is also used by the plugin updater. Since the plugin updater does not need to check if the class in question has already been instantiated I have changed the code in the plugin to ensure that the PclZip library is not loaded while updating a plugin.

Anyway for those who do want to continue using WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin please update to the latest version first or else if you are already using WordPress 2.5 first deactivate the plugin and then update and activate it.

I take immense pleasure in saying this too that WPAU has reached version 1.0 and actively supports upgrading from WordPress 2.5 to any new version that may be released.

    It has been a pleasure using this plugin. Thank you for it. I have used it successfully in all my installations except this one. Any pointers as to why this happens will be appreciated.
    I recently upgraded WP from 2.3.3 to 2.5 and then migrated from Apache to litespeed based hosting (facilitated by my provider – Steadfast) The site works well, but for some reason I can’t upgrade to 2.5.1
    I am using WPAU 1.1 and get the following message after the plugin starts putting the site in maintenance mode:
    “Warning: copy(/hsphere/local/home/saplingindia/mahasldc.in/index.php.wpau.bak): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /hsphere/local/home/saplingindia/mahasldc.in/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wpau_upgrade.class.php on line 321 We could not complete the upgrade please try again later, click here to check the logs.”
    Any idea where I am going wrong?
    Thanks a ton.

    I just saw this now. Good thing I did!

    I’m having the same problem as Rosina above; I keep getting looped through the “cleanup” process. Is there a way to do the cleanup manually (FTPing to a directory and deleting files directly from the server)?

      Problem solved: The issue was with the /wpau-backup directory permissions.
