Plugins Won't Install In Subdomain Blog (2 posts)

    I setup (with no problem) a WP blog at ken.2blog4.com, however when I try to update or add a plugin, I am directed to a page that requests my main domain FTP credentials. I put them in, but the themes or plugins won't install (I get a message that WP can't connect) "Failed to connect to FTP Server 2blog4.com" however, if I FTP with an FTP client like FileZilla, I can manually add plugins and change themes.

    Anyone have a clue why I have this issue or how to resolve it?

    Kind thanks,

    Check the file permissions of the wp-contents directory (and the themes & plugins directories). http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions
