Updating WordPress directly and without FTP
Here I will help you to update the WordPress website directly and without an FTP user account. When you are unable to update/update your WordPress and plug-ins to a newer release without specifying your FTP connectivity information. It is a frequent problem where the WordPress system cannot directly type into the /wp-content directory.
When installing plug-ins or a WordPress update, WordPress asks you for your FTP connectivity information only if it cannot directly type into /wp-content. Otherwise, if your web servers have writing permission to the necessary data, they will take automatic responsibility for updating and installing it. No FTP/SFTP or SSH account is required for this approach, but it requires that you have specified rights to your web servers.
Define ('FS_METHOD','direct'); It allows you to use the'direct' methods to install Wordpress plug-ins, Wordpress topics, or Wordpress fixes. Detailed documentations about WordPress update and authorization:
Insert FTP info into wp-config.php to facilitate updates.
Do you host your WordPress pages on one of the host (s) where WordPress prompts you to specify FTP detail before you update yourself or update plug-ins? So, if you click on an update instead of just starting the update procedure, you'll get a display that looks like this instead:
While I have no previous experiences with load and load of different host, I can tell you that when you host to Media Temple (gs) upgrade, upgrading to Media Temple (gs) will generally "just work", but if you use your more efficient (dv) utility (which I definitely recommend), you will come across the FTP thing. The file system can be accessed, the file system belongs to me, but the web server doesn't run like me, so WordPress doesn't recognize the update correctly.
At the heart of the problem is that when WordPress performs these updates for you on your own account, it is the servers that do the work running as 'apache' users. Per standard the avpache users have no writing permission to your web folders at least on the (dv) servers.
Due to the property that Plesk allocates to your Web site folders and folders, Apache by default does not have authority to store in your Web whereabouts. ANYWAY... If you just want to fix it and not tamper with plug-ins or sophisticated remote control modification technologies, the simplest way is to enter your FTP data.
If WordPress asks you to do so, you can do it. Or, to avoid the annoyance, you can specify these in your wp-config.php and the automatic upgrade will be "working" again. ssh/id_rsa.pub'); define('FTP_PRIKEY', '/homusername/.ssh/id_rsa'); define('FTP_USER', 'username'); define('FTP_PASS', 'password'); define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp. ('net/httpdocs/'); define('FTP_USER','username'); define('FTP_PASS','password'); define('FTP_HOST','host'); define('FTP_SSL', false); If you have problems getting the full sentence to work, definitely try to go back to my slimmed down example.
