upgrade WordPress ftp prompt (5 posts)

    I have a very 'stock' install of WordPress - TwentyEleven, Contact Form 7 and that's about it. For some reason it has started refusing to upgrade without ftp details - details I don't want to give it because that would involve setting up ftp on the server.
    Updating plugins still works fine, and WP upgrades used to work fine to, until recently.

    I've had a look at the file and folder permissions and it looks ok to me.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks! Not exactly sure why, but that did it.

    Added

    define('FS_METHOD', 'direct'); //updates via file system

    to my wp-config.php file, just before the /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ message and it worked.

    One question: Should I comment that out for the moment, or is it ok to leave it there?

    I suggest comment that after you work

    Thanks.

    It'd be nice to solve it rather than rely on an ugly hack. What is causing it?
