I have been having this issue with ftp and wordpress for the last few days and finally decided to see if anyone could help me...
I have just setup wordpress and have it hosted on one of my local servers. I also setup an ftp server on this same machine. After I log in to the wp-admin page I try to download new theme, or install new plugins. Lets take the themes example... After selecting a theme and clicking install it prompts me for my ftp information. After entering my info I click perceed and nothing happens. The status bar at the bottom of my web browser says DONE but nothing happens. Now I realize that I can install themes manually but I would like to get this working.
I am pretty sure that my ftp is setup right. I can type the ftp host name into firefox and the type in my user and pasword and it will show me my files. By files i mean everyithing in my /var/www/localhost/htdocs/worpress/ folder were all the wordpress files are kept. This user who I log in with also has full permision to these files.
is there a log for wordpress were I can figure out what wordpress is doing or does anyone have any other ideas.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
