Automatic update issue (4 posts)

    I would like to use the automatic update feature for WordPress. I am currently running 3.1.2, which I updated manually a few weeks ago from 2.86. I was hoping to not have to update manually each and every time, but I'm still running into the same problem. I've researched this issue and have not come up with a solution that has worked for me. The error message I receive is:

    Unable to locate WordPress root directory

    The url for the site is http://factorintalent.com/pragmaticleaderblog

    I've read solutions that involve insuring using the correct User Name and Password on the Connection Information Screen. I am using the same User Name and Password successfully in FileZilla. So what's up?

  2. Generally that's a 'something is set up differently on your server' issue.

    From this older post can you try putting this code in your wp-config.php?

    if(is_admin()) {
    	add_filter('filesystem_method', create_function('$a', 'return "direct";' ));
    	define( 'FS_CHMOD_DIR', 0751 );
    }

    Put it ABOVE the 'stop editing here' line.

    Thanks for the feedback, unfortunately that did not help me.
