mod_rewrite loaded, still asks for server connection information? (6 posts)

    I'm working on an upgrade, and had to do it manually because the auto-upgrade wouldn't allow a file to be created. Once I upgraded, I attempted to upgrade plugins, and again -it's asking me for connection information. I put the connection information in, and the plugin cannot auto upgrade as it can't write to the files.

    I checked file permissions, they are 755. I've changed them to 777 just to see if it would make a difference, but it didn't.

    I've checked using phpinfo.php in the root directory and it does indicate that mod_rewrite is loaded, but it is obviously not working. What am I missing?

    What would cause the upgrade and plugins to ask for server connection information - and subsequently not be able to upgrade because it cannot write to files or create folders?

    What would ...?

    not mod_rewrite. thats why I asked where you were going with that.

    mod_rewrite is primarily used for permalinks when it comes to wordpress. it has nothing to do with FTP connections or permissions.

    Not mod_rewrite. Okay. Thanks.

    Any idea why wordpress auto upgrade/plugin upgrades would ask for connection information and then fail to install or be able to write to files/create folders?
