I have an idea of what the problem is, but what is the best way to fix or do a work around?
My entire account with FastWebHosts is set up weird. Some is my fault, that I do admit.
What I started with was one domain, cottom.org and added several more over the 12 years I've been doing this.
My domain name is: cottom.org.
under that I have five WordPress applications running. So, cottom.org/cottom.org/rgfg.org redirected to just http://www.rgfg.org. BUT by doing so none of the "automatic" updates will work because they are expecting a a different directory structure.
I can find no place to download and install manually the various updates and themes. I could install them myself, if I could find them for manual download.
