WordPress FTP Credentials help

Hi,

 

I get this error message every time I enter my FTP username and password in WordPress.

 

"There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct."

Hello @donkhan

 

Have you tried the same FTP credentials with FileZilla ?

Re: WordPress FTP Credentials help

Hi Adrian thanks for the advice.

 

So I am building a website (faaleh.us) in wordpress under the host culturopedia.net. I don't know what to enter when wordpress asks for the FTP credentials.  Do I enter the FTP credentials for culturopedia.net?

Hello @donkhan

 

You should never have to enter any FTP information when adding plugins or working on your website.

If you’re being asked for FTP info and can’t upload media, it’s a host permissions problem.

 

I use WordPress on many of my sites and it never asked me for the FTP credentials.

 

Try to add this code in wp-config.php:  define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

 

If that does not work, take a look here: https://www.narga.net/stop-fix-wordpress-ask-for-ftp-credentials-upgrade-install-delete-themes-plugi...

Good luck.
