Can anyone help please- i've been stuck with this for a while...
Whenever i try and add a new theme or plug-in i get a window prompting for Hostname / Username / Password / Connection Type . The correct details (I have double checked all these from GoDaddy for the ftp connection details) do not work. I get the message: "Failed to connect to FTP server MyFTPSite.com:21"
I have read many threads on this and tried using "localhost" or "localhost:21" instead of real ftp name which i understand sometimes works but doesn't work in this case.
Some info: WordPress 2.9.2. Hosted on GoDaddy, and WordPress intalled by GoDaddy by their "Auto Install". Host server is Linux. I'm using a Mac with OS X 10.5.8. I am able to go on ftp with CyberDuck ftp server and also through GoDaddy's online ftp server.
Would really appreciate any help- i'm so stuck :-[
