WordPress Error : Missing archive file 'C:\Windows\TEMP/wordpress-3.tmp'

Sometimes when a WordPress plugin is getting upgraded, the following error is displayed:
Missing archive file 'C:\Windows\TEMP/wordpress-3.tmp'

Below are a few steps to solve this issue.

  • First FTP to your server.
  • Find the folder called wp-content.
  • Then create a new directory/folder 'TEMP' inside the wp-content directory.
  • Now edit wp-config with any editor and at the very bottom, paste this line - exactly the same as the one I pasted below.
  • define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/TEMP');
  • Save the wp-config file and then exit.

Then again try to upgrade your plugins and hopefully this will have fixed the issue.
