Could not copy files.

Romerornd’s solution worked for me too. <br> <br>Can you fix the permissions at droplet creation time for the wordpress app? <br> <br>Apart from that the wordpress app works beautifully.

CentOS 6.4 command line <br>chmod -R g+w /var/www/Your-install-location <br>chown -R youruser:youruser /var/www/Your-install-location

Just wanted to chime in that romerornd’s solution worked perfectly to update to WordPress 3.7!
