              directory /wp-content/


 okay, I made some mistakes - I had a memory issue (the memory limit on
 this particular blog was too low). now I can update and install new
 plugins without problems - although wordpress still stores the zip file in
 the /wp-content/ directory instead of the /wp-content/upgrade/ directory.
 is there a reason for that?

 >  * Which FTP method are you using? (Do you know? Sockets or Extension?)
 Sorry, that I don't know - is there a way to find out?

 >  * When you connect via FTP, I'm assuming from your define, that the
 wordpress files are in /
 yes, they are.

 >  * Are you sure the files are not being unpacked into upgrade/ and then
 moved to wp-content/ (ie. no plugins directory)
 it seems they get unzip INTO the upgrade/ dir.

 >  * Can you -install- plugins, rather than upgrade them
 Yes, now I can.
