Support » Fixing WordPress » FTP not working; WordPress 4.4

  • Resolved S1L1K0N


    Upgraded from WordPress 4.3.1 to 4.4 yesterday, all seemed to go well.

    When attempting to access theme settings today (Tempera) the tempera theme settings page was blank. Thought maybe I just need to re-install it, de-activated theme, went to try an un-install it and it wouldn’t clear from my themes area in the wordpress dashboard, manually deleted it using ftp and when I tried to re-install it I received the following:

    Downloading install package from…

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Could not copy file. /data/www/mmfa/wp-content/themes/tempera/404.php

    Theme install failed.

    This was working fine under WordPress 4.3.1; and none of my permissions have been modified. Looked up /var/log/mmfa/error.log and I see the following every time WordPress is trying to use ftp:

    PHP Warning: Illegal string offset ‘name’ in /data/www/mmfa/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php on line 730, referer: http://www.mmfa.lan/wp-admin/update.php?action=install-theme&theme=tempera&_wpnonce=aff1fc7c5c

    OS is FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE; running Apache24, MySQL 5.5, PHP 5.6.

    Any ideas? Thanks.
