Support » Fixing WordPress » Connection settings for localhost (IIS7)

  • Resolved matthewharmon102


    ive just installed wordpress 3.0.1 on IIS7 and im trying to update a plugin but it asks for connection settings. wordpress is running on iis7 on windows 7. i have enabled ftp publishing in iis7, but i am a bit unsure of what settings i needed so i left them on the default values. im not sure what user name and password i need or what the host name is. ive tried using ‘localhost’ and with my windows username and password but it comes up saying ‘Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content).’

    if i specify the path (localhost/wordpress/wp-content or localhost/wordpress) i get ‘Failed to connect to FTP Server localhost/wordpress/wp-content:21’

    both iis7 and wordpress are new to me so im not sure where to go from here!
