Failed to create update file error when updating to 1.3

Recommended Posts

I am trying to update to 1.3 and I get an error that says Failed to create update file 

Any ideas what would cause this?

I suspect it is a permissions issue with the server but I believe I have everything set correctly 644 for files and 775 for directories. That said I just finished moving the site and the original site on the original server had no issues updating but this one won't.

Yes it was a permissions issue. Everything inside the public_html directory had the correct owner and permission but the public_html directory itself was owned by root. Once I chanced that to www-data the update worked fine.

Fairly specific issue but figured I'd post the solution on the off chance that someone else has this issue in the future.
