WordPress won't recognise FTP password for upgrades (2 posts)

    My wordpress install won't recognise my FTP login, when I try to upgrade or install plugins automatically. If I download the zipfiles I can upgrade manually using FTP - so I know the FTP credentials are correct.

    I thought I could work around this, but I tried changing to pretty permalinks, and now can't access any pages other than the homepage.

    It's a plesk panel 9.5 and the website is http://www.thessc.org

    Any ideas?

    look in your root to see if an .htaccess file was actually created
    if not, go back to dashboard and set permalinks again
    do you get a success message? or code to put in an .htaccess file?

    if it is a windows server, you may be stuck with default permalinks, but review this

    if server is linux, any permalinks should work - ask host if not

    when you get that sorted, add these constants to your wp-config.php for taking care of upgrades, etc.
