I’m new to VPS and Wordpress, and I’m trying to learn more about while I set up my website.
I tried to update to WP 4.6 through my Wordpress backend via the one-click process, but it failed and I got this error.
Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-4.6-no-content.zip… Unpacking the update… The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.: wp-admin/includes/update-core.php Installation Failed
I followed the following tutorials for the initial setup:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-16-04 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-in-ubuntu-16-04 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lemp-on-ubuntu-16-04
Do I need to do something else with permissions that these tutorials didn’t cover? Should I try to upgrade through SSH instead of the WP backend?
