I'm trying to update to WordPress version 3.4.1, and update my themes. In fact I cannot do any kind of update. I get an error message when WordPress tries to connect to my Earthlink web server. I type in the correct Hostname, FTP Username, FTP Password, etc and then it gives the error: "ERROR: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct." I have everything correct. I've checked and triple checked. Does anyone know why WordPress won't connect to my Earthlink server?
(yes, I've tried updating manually, doesn't seem to work either. everything else is working fine.)
