Automatic update doesn't work... (2 posts)

    When I try to update plugins or wordpress itself it asks me to enter ftp information first... I have a VPS hosting and what settings should I change to make automatic update work?

    Thanks

    That's the way some hosting situations work--so file in the FTP information to complete the update.

    You could put these constants in your wp-config.php file so you don't have to reenter them each upgrade:

    define('FTP_HOST', 'yourftphost.com');
    define('FTP_USER', 'ftp user here');
    define('FTP_PASS', 'ftp password here');

    and some other constants that might be useful:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    define('FS_TIMEOUT', 900);

    See Editing wp-config.php

    Also look at the Core Control Plugin to 'manage' your transports.
