Support » Localhost Installs » "Unable to locate WordPress Root directory." after installing local host.

    Hey guys, I’ve recently installed WAMP server on my computer and I installed wordpress in a folder called shruicha. My website is

    All was fine when I updated this website a few days ago, but now when I try to update my plugins or anything it asks me for my FTP credentials and when I give my details it said username/password error (I checked it and the credentials were right). So I checked the forum and put this in my wp-config.php
    define( ‘FTP_USER’, ‘username’ );
    define( ‘FTP_PASS’, ‘password’ );
    define( ‘FTP_HOST’, ‘’ );

    (with my credentials ofcourse). Now it says :

    “Unable to locate WordPress Root directory.

    Installation Failed”

    I’m wondering if this is because of the local host. I’m new to local host and I don’t understand how it may affect or what I can do. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

  • Hello, I’m sorry for posting this. But I spoke to my hosting service and it turns out I have exceeded the number of files I could upload onto my server.
    🙂 which also means it has nothing to do with my local host installation or anything else
