    Are you using the standard upgrade option, or the Wordpress Automatic Upgrade plug-in. Personally I've continued to use the plug-in, since it provides some cool features.

    Anyway, sometimes an extreme cpu hit occurs due to the size of the DB. Is it a large blog?

    This sounds like a server issue. Have you reported it to your hosting company?

    Are you using on old version of WordPress? If so, you might want to try manually copying the newest version over the old files. It may work the next time you use it.


    The Wordpress automatic update stopped working for me around version 2.8.2. It did work prior to that. After about 3 minutes of running time I get an error that says that is cannot copy a particular file.

    Its probably a permission problem. As in the files are not writeable, or wordpress can not write to a temp folder.

    Dont do the automatic upgrade thing anyway. Learn up to upgrade the script yourself. This knowledge will serve you well later in life if you ever use anything besides wordpress.

    Can you please explain which permissions should be fixed?

    you need to have a good server to do it.... cheap and slow server can hang in the process
    and remember to make db backup before doing automatic update...

    Agreed, this will be the quickest way to see if it's an error in the WP install. If this fails, it man be an issue in your PHP config.
