Auto updating doesn't work, could this be because port 80 is closed? (1 post)

    Since I upgraded to version 2.8.5 I've had trouble auto-updating plug-ins and couldn't auto-update to version 2.8.6. I'm running two WordPress sites and the problem affects both.

    I was looking at an entirely different problem earlier today and noticed port 80 is closed on this PC. A little digging tells me this is the port WP uses to FTP files. Could this be why I can't autoupdate?
