[resolved] ftp suddenly doesn't work (2 posts)

    all of a sudden any attempt to automatically update a plugin or the blog returns this error:
    Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.

    nothing has changed. I've made a new ftp user and re-entered both users/passwords, zip. Both users information works in an ftp client. It's only wordpress that isn't working.

    Whew! MUCH google searching later, found a thread that suggests using "localhost" instead of host address, along with username, password.

    It works but I was looking at a blank screen for a LONG TIME before install was successful. I'd start it then go away so you don't notice how long it takes!
