[resolved] Cannot update WP or upload plugins (3 posts)

    I have a website that I installed WP on a few months back but haven't worked on beyond the install of WP and a theme. I went back to it today and needed to update WP and install a few plugins.

    When I went to do that it started asking me for FTP info, which was new to me. After research I added said FTP info into the wp-config file. Now when I go to update, where it should start putting info on the screen about downloading and updating the files I get nothing in the right pane of the dashboard.

    I've tried changing wp-content to 777 and still nothing. I can FTP but I needd to be able to update via WP.

    I'm stumped. Any thoughts?

    Check your FTP details with your hosts.

    It turned out to be host-specific issue. Having to use a PHP wrapper to make it work. Did that and all is well.
