    I'm having some issues with WordPress and trying to figure out if its my php settings causing an issue.

    Would any of the following being disabled affect wordpress from fully functioning with all of it's ability such as installing plugins from the dashboard without needing to enter FTP credentials among other things:

    - dl
    - passthru

    Thank you in advance for any replies.

    You could figure this out by doing a search for each of these in your WordPress PHP files. You don't even have to be on the server to do this.

    How would I go about that? My local computer is both mac and windows but never attempted to search for text inside files before.....

  4. Both Mac and Windows? OSX with virtual Windows?

    Use Spotlight to search for text strings; restrict to the wordpress directory if needed.
