[resolved] Integrating FTP information somewhere (4 posts)

    Whenever I install a new plugin/theme, I'm asked to provide "Hostname", "Username", "Password", and "Connection Type".

    Is there anyway that I can integrate this information into somewhere in the wordpress core files so that I don't really have to fill these details whenever I install a new plugin/theme?

    Thanks in advance!

    Changing the file permissions on your wp-content directory should do it.

    Thanks batrachoid and esmi!

    The link provided gave me in depth information on how I could do that.

    I just need to add the following information into the wp-config.php file...

    define('FTP_USER', 'username');
    define('FTP_PASS', 'password');
    define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp.example.org:21');
    define('FTP_SSL', false);

    This worked just well. Now, this saved a lot of my time.

    Special thanks to esmi, again!
