How to make sure that WordPress automatic install and upgrade work

18 July 2011 Par : Yann Dubois Catégorie : WordPress 1 Commentaire →

When file permissions are not setup the way it expects, WordPress cannot use the automatic upgrade feature and prompts you for FTP or SFTP credentials to perform any upgrade on a theme, plugin or the core WP files.
