2.7.1 problem: Error Connecting to Server (5 posts)

    When I try to automatically upgrade to 2.7.1, I get a message saying: "Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.".

    I'm identifying hostname as http://ftp.unfoldingleadership.com, user and password as specified by my host, Oxxus. Not sure what I need to do differently! Permissions look okay.

    Thanks

    try using only unfoldingleadership.com and also varify the username. Normally, in linux, the FTP username is user@hostname. So make it clear that you are using correct username.

    Also, do NOT mention your passwords in this thread.

    Thanks, Ryan

    In the hostname box, if I enter http://ftp.unfoldingleadership.com, it automatically changes to http://ftp.unfoldingleadership.com://unfoldingleadership.com

    The user@hostname format is what I've been using for the user name.

    'This' sounds like a related problem.
