Support » Fixing WordPress » Media Temple DV media library upload/delete and plugin update

  • granulr


    Hey everyone,
    I have a media temple DV base server (just got it) and I am having problems with the following issues:
    1.) Auto Plugin Updater will not update – asks for ftp info
    2.) Flash uploader doesn’t work
    3.) When I delete a file in the media library through the admin – it doesn’t erase it off the server.
    4.) Plugin updater also isn’t working.

    WordPress also wasn’t able to create an htaccess file – I had to do this manually. I’ve had to change file permissions to get this to work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

    I also am trying to put wordpress on my DV base with media temple. Just signed up today. *BANGS HEAD ON WALL* Having problems with the exact same things so far.

    chmod of .htaccess fixed that problem.

    this is not a good solution but if you do the following command on your upload folder:

    chmod 767 -R uploads

    you will be able to use the uploads, however this makes it world writeable which is scary. I have not got the plugins to work yet. If anyone has any advice/fixes let me know as well.



    Hi. It might be a good idea to also cross-post this on the (mt) Users Forums, for help from other (dv) users.

    (mt) Dedicated-Virtual User Forums →

    Did anyone find a solution to this problem on the (dv)? I have searched (mt)’s forum and there is nothing there on the topic.

    I also have a base dv server with them and have noticed that contact form plugins do not work as well (at least for me).

    Found a fix for the ftp password prompt issue…Credit goes to ufgcorp on the MT forums.

    1. open wp-config.php
    2. Add the following and edit with your ftp info

    define(‘FTP_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
    define(‘FTP_USER’, ‘YOUR-FTP-USERNAME’);
    define(‘FTP_PASS’, ‘YOUR-FTP-PASSWORD’);
