I have been growing increasingly frustrated with my WordPress installation recently due to issues with updating plugins. Allow me to explain....
When I go to the plugins tab and select the 'update automatically' option under a plugin that requires an update, a FTP Information screen appears requesting my FTP account details etc. Whilst I don't have a problem with this, updates over FTP take time and I am aware that when I was on my previous host, I didn't have to do this. The files were simply downloaded and the plugin was updated in one or two clicks without any FTP information having to be exchanged.
I get the feeling that I may have configured my VPS incorrectly, and would very much like to be able to simply update a plugin in a matter of a few clicks without having to add any FTP details. Can anyone help?!
For your reference, my VPS specification is listed below:-
* 512Mb guaranteed RAM, 1024Mb burst RAM
* Parallels Power Panel (Virtuozzo)
* CentOS 4
* cPanel 11 & Fantastico
* Apache 2.0 or 2.2 (I can't remember)
* PHP 5 & MySQL 5
