I've recently just installed wordpress on a dedicated server and have the dashboard up and running.
However, whenever i continue to install plugins (in particular WP Super Cache plugin) it keeps asking for my FTP credentials
I've provided the same credentials i use when i log into Cute FTP (this is how i installed the wordpress files), however, wordpress repeatedly tells me "FTP hostname is required"
I have tried every variation of hostnames known to man , but still seem to get this error
(my ip address)
I have also hardcoded my details in Wp-config to no avail
I have also reinstalled wordpress, and continue to get teh same errors. I can confirm my username and password are correct as i can access ftp when entering http://ftp.messr.co.uk in my address bar
