    I can’t install it at all, that’s the problem.


    I am having the same exact issue. I have downloaded and zipped all of the pluginsI want, go to the upload page, get to the “Connection information Page”, Hostname: localhost, username: admin, Password: xxxxx. I know my password, I can log onto the dashboard fine, why is it saying my username/password are incorrect?

    This also happens when I try to use the quick install as wel.

    The same exact thing is happening to me too. Please help … ?

    I can confirm that this problem is ongoing. New installation of 2.9 No custom plugins. Double checked user and password info. What is causing this? Its a major problem.




    I got this far:

    Use ftp login information rather than wp — but I don’t recall this kind of problem with any install before this fresh 2.9 one. But I am still not getting an install of any theme or plugin. The install seems to hang up.

    I tried resetting the permissions on the WP-content folder to 777, but still doesn’t work. Anyone have a clue?



    Oops, I got it. On top of the other confusions, it seems the site was experiencing a downtime. But the first new theme is now installed.

    So, if anyone happens on this thread with this problem, here are the two critical things to remember:

    1) Use your FTP user name and password;
    2)Reset the permissions on your wp-content folder to 777.
