    WordPress running on my Synology NAS using Virtual host.

    The first time that I run WordPress update WP request an FTP connection.
    I setup my FTP pointed to \web\rvwing.eu\wordpress (read\write).
    I fill in connection information Hostname, FTP Username. FTP Password.
    I press Proceed, resulting in Updating Plugin Akismet Anti-Spam (1/1).

    Downloading update from
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/akismet.4.0.2.zip
    An error occurred while updating Akismet Anti-Spam: Download failed. No working transports found

    Is there somebody with a advice how to solve this problems.
    01 Download failed
    02 No working transport found

    Thx Rob73

    – If you can install plugins, install Health Check. On the troubleshooting tab, you can click the button to disable all plugins and change the theme for you, while you’re still logged in, without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    What does it say about connecting to wordpress.org?

    – Some more info on using this plugin can be found here:

    Hi t-p
    >If you can install plugins, install Health Check.
    I install Health Check manually (FTP is NOT working)

    After I reading the Health Check information I decide to stop continue with wordpress running on my virtual host.

    Synology is NOT friendly in connecting WordPress and database ect… To many things I have to investigate and to change. I like to do that but only when I can do that in a group. To discuss what an why something is wrong…

    For now I setup my virtual host for simple websites example using MS Office (html)

    Still I have the original WordPress version from Synology running.

    Thxs for your advice..

    Best regards Rob73, The Netherlands

    I am using Synology NAS DS118
    After 2 day’s I have WordPress running om my Virtual host

    Setup my virtual host as follow Name: domain name, HTTP Backup-end server: Nginx, PHP: PHP 5.6. Activate in phpMyAdmin MariaDB 5 and Create new database. Unzip WordPress 4.9.1. install dir. web/domain-name/wordpress etc. copied index.php to the root and change/added/edit

    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’ );

    Run the website and fill in the required data. If every thing is OK you get/copy the text file in to wp-config.php file and copy this file to wordpress directory.

    Now I install added/extra in wp-config.php my ftp information.

    // forces the filesystem method: “direct”, “ssh”, “ftpext”, or “ftpsockets”
    define(‘FS_METHOD’, ‘ftpext’);

    // hostname:port combo for your SSH/FTP server
    define(‘FTP_HOST’, ‘xxxx:21’);

    // either your FTP or SSH username
    define(‘FTP_USER’, ‘web’);

    // password for FTP_USER username
    define(‘FTP_PASS’, ‘**********’);

    Next step is to create in NAS FTP named “web” (any name) with read/write permit to my domain directory. Group and user permission on File Station and HHTP.

    From here wordpress running fine

    Thx Rob73, The Neterlands

    Information update
    Virtual Host can run only when you have already wordpress installed from Synology included MariaDB 10. Install package: Appache HTTP Server 2.2, PHP 7.0

    Create in web station Virtual Host: Hostname: “domain name”. Port: 80/443, document root “domain name” HTTP back-end server: appache HTTP Server 2.2, PHP: PHP 7.0

    Create in the control panel > file sharing > new directory “domain name”

    Create in the control panel > user name “domain name” permission FTP only. Go to Group user > http > set read\write permission to “domain name”

    Create in MariaDB 10 new database using phpMyAdmin: Open MariaDB 10, create new database “domain name” go, close

    Install wordpress (unzip) in the document root “domain.name”

    Copy \\wordpress\index.php to root \\index.php. Modified index.php text ‘/wp-blog-header.php’ to ‘/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php’

    Start on the internet and enter http:\\domain name. Now you have to enter the wordpress database. Fill in “domain name”, user “root” and password “xxxxxx”, Host name: 127.0.0.1:3307, Table prefix ‘wp_’ and submit..

    Added “wordpress\wp-config.php” FTPS Information.
    // forces the filesystem method: “direct”, “ssh”, “ftpext”, or “ftpsockets”
    define(‘FS_METHOD’, ‘ftpext’);
    // hostname:port combo for your SSH/FTP server
    define(‘FTP_HOST’, “‘domain name”:21 of others’);
    // either your FTP or SSH username
    define(‘FTP_USER’, “NAS domain example “xxxx.synology.me”);
    // password for FTP_USER “domain name”
    define(‘FTP_PASS’, ‘**********’);

    Run ready to go…..

    I learn that I don’t need a FTP Connection
    Add in wp-config.php the next line

    /** Set up ‘direct’ method for wordpress, auto update without FTP */
    define(‘FS_METHOD’, ‘direct’);

    Problem solve… greet and simple

    Thx Rob74
