    When using the plugin auto update feature on WP 2.5, it ask for a Hostname.

    I'm not sure if it should be 'localhost' or 'ftp.site-name.com'

    It should be whatever name you use to connect to your site via FTP.

    I seem to have a similar problem. I have put in:

    hostname: ftp://(computer_name)@(ip address of website for blog)
    username: admin
    password: oooooooo

    and it keeps coming up with the error message:

    Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.

    I have tried sftp://..... instead of ftp and it makes no difference.

    I have tried ftp://(ip address of website for blog) and still the error message.

    Any ideas please?

    PS: I have gone to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-to-any-subscribe/ and downloaded the zip file in the mean time, but I would still like to know what the host name should be?
