I have used a localhostserver test environment on my Windows computer for a long time now. I have used several Windows WordPress install methods eg WebMatrix / WebPlatformInstaller WordPress installs and also a manual install with IIS7.5 via inetpub>wwwroot>wordpress directories.
With this last approach I have never been able to update WordPress automatically as I had not enabled Windows FTP Server. I have always updated this localhost WP manually. Well with the recent latest version of WP (3.4.2) I have enabled FTP server in an attempt to enable auto update. Then on trying auto update at first I had a problem with FTP and WP error message saying " cannot connect-server error".
I think this was due to incorrect FTP details and I have fixed that but now I have an error message "install failed-cannot find wp-content directory". I am now trying to fix this & would appreciate help to do so.What is the cause of this? A permission error? I have googled for help with this but as yet not found a fix.
So I look forward to helpful replies to help me fix this-thanks
