Trouble Connecting to FTP via Admin page (3 posts)

    Hey all,

    I just installed WordPress and am unable to install plug-ins/themes through the Admin page because I can't connect to my FTP.

    I can connect to my FTP using FileZilla when set to Active mode but cannot connect through the Admin page.

    Any ideas? Can I set my FTP mode via the browser to Active?

    Thanks,

    Lars
