Automatic Plugin Updating; Saving FTP Details (3 posts)

    Hi,

    How do I set WP to automatically remember my FTP details, rather than having to enter password every time I wish to upgrade or install a plugin?

    Automatic installs of 2.6 on Dreamhost remember the details, but standard installs on other hosting platforms ask every time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You can add to your config.php file the following lines to save the FTP values:

    // ** FTP SETTINGS FOR AUTO-UPDATE ** //
    define('FTP_HOST', 'YOUR-HOSTNAME-HERE');
    define('FTP_USER', 'YOUR-FTP-USERNAME');
    define('FTP_PASS', 'YOUR-FTP-PASSWORD');

    Then it will remember permanently.
