 Hi, I encounter this message on one server during plugin install: "Unable
 to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content)."

 PHP Version 5.2.0-8+etch1

 Another info from Core Control plugin:

 Direct Not Available

 SSH2 Not Available

 PHP FTP Extension Available

 PHP FTP Sockets Available

 ABSPATH: /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www/

 WP_CONTENT_DIR /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www/wp-content

 WP_PLUGIN_DIR /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www/wp-content/plugins

 DOCUMENT_ROOT (from phpinfo)  /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www

 I tried some hacks in wp-config.php, but I was not successfull.

 When I tried ftpsockets, following error appears:

 Warning: socket_last_error() expects parameter 1 to be resource, null
 given in /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-
 sockets.php on line 59

 When I tried direct, following error appears:

 Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-

 Unpacking the package

 Could not create directory. /home/www/domain.eu/subdomains/www/wp-
