    Automatic Updating Issue, by ModernRevolutions

    I was having a problem using the auto updater in my WordPress. I assume this is a new thing to put in the FTP and everything, however whenever I do it, i get

    Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-4.9-no-content.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Could not create directory.

    Installation Failed

    I have looked at other threads and haven’t been able to find the correct answer. I saw most of the posts saying that I should just do it manually, however, honestly I feel that is rather frustrating and annoying. I am the FTP account holder and have access to both the FTP account itself as well as through an FTP uploader. I have tried changing the permissions on the folders (/wordpress, /wp-content). However, I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong because its still not working.

    Thanks in advance!

    Also, if its any consolation, it wont even let me upload images, it just says

    Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2017/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
