[resolved] How to update WordPress on Mac OS X's built-in apache server? (5 posts)

    How can I update my WordPress install on my Mac's built-in apache server (no X/MAMPP)? It seems I can't FTP into my own local server somehow. Are there any default credentials I should use? Any tweaks I should do to be able to properly download and install WordPress updates?

    You can use wordpress' built in tool to upgrade your installation, but that will only work if your permissions are correct.

    Try setting the owner of your site directory to _www and the group to _www.

    Alternatively, you can try this:

    restart apache, and you should be able to upgrade!

    Best of luck!
