[Resolved] Call to undefined function plugin_basename()

    Automatic Updater is not meant to be accessed directly, it’s a plugin for WordPress.

    In wp-admin, go to Settings -> Automatic Updater to configure it.

    Hi Gary,
    The reason why I accessed it directly is because the plugin doesn’t update my wordpress installation. I don’t get an error or receive an email. I figured that if I access it directly I will be able to find out why it doesn’t work.

    The plugin is properly installed and is activated. Do you have any clue why it won’t initiate?

    A few thoughts:

    * On the settings page, do you have all the options checked to keep WordPress, your themes and plugins up to date? (Only the WordPress core option is checked by default.)
    * Do you have the Better WP Security plugin installed? If so, you will need to stop it from hiding updates.
    * When you normally click the Update button, does everything update automatically? Do you need to type in FTP login details?

    Thanks for your thoughts. After I added my FTP settings to the wp-config.php file the plugin started working perfectly!
