I don't have FTP but it is requiring FTP access (4 posts)

    Hello, for some reason I cannot update and install any plugins. It is saying I need FTP access, but this does not make any sense as the blog is located on our own domain. We don't have FTP. http://www.socialroots.com/blog. Can you help me with this?

    Check wit your host. Probably blocking outgoing Port 21 which is for ftp. This would be for ftp'ing to get the plugins/updates. Not for incoming.

    Outgoing FTP is not blocked. Incoming FTP is blocked. Do we need FTP access? Is it required to install plugins?

    Strange to have a website that can not ftp into it. But if its blocked inbound would think it must be blocked outbound.
    Otherwise, is this hosted on Linux or Windows?
    Apache or IIS?
