How to resolve Issue in installing and updating Plugins in WordPress Hosting

If wordpress detects that it cannot write files to this temp directory, then you get the error message like

“The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_MISSING_FILE (-4) : Missing archive file ‘\TEMP/akismet.tmp ” .


You can work around this by specifying a temp directory on your server with a place that you know WordPress is allowed to write files to.

You can do this by adding this line of code into the wp-config.php file.

1. Find the links blow:

if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) )

define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’);

2. Add lines below

/** Specify wordpress temp dir */

define(‘WP_TEMP_DIR’, ABSPATH . ‘wp-content/temp’);

3. Open wp-content folder, and create a new folder named “temp”

Try again, you will see it works.
