Automatic Updates For Plugins


Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm a new "user" to TCH. I was here, then left, and came back because one domain needed it's own hosting account.

 

Anyway, with my other host, I'm able to update plugins for Wordpress with nary a problem. Here, though, I'm having fits trying to figure it out.

I set up a new FTP account, just to be on the safe side.

 

What I'm trying to figure out is the hostname.

 

WP installation: http://sigsnmore.com/shop/

 

I've tried localhost, just adds ://sigsnmore.com/shop/ to the end of that.

Tried ftp.sigsnmore.com and it does the same thing, as well, as doing it with shop added on.

Tried http://sigsnmore.com/ with and without shop and it says, always:

Failed to connect to FTP Server

 

Any suggestions on how to make this work? It saves a heck of a lot of time, since I will be able to upgrade WP through that way.

And if it matters, I'm using WP 2.7 beta 3

I've done that, and it still does a forward: ftp.sigsnmore.com://www.sigsnmore.com/public_html/shop

I'm not sure what you mean it's doing a forward. What are you entering for hostname?

 

I don't have any plugins needing updating at the moment so I can't see the dialog that it presents but it was pretty simple to use. If I'm not mistaken it only asks for 3 pieces of information.

 

hostname - ftp.you-TCH-domain.ext

ftp user - the ftp user you created

password - the password for the ftp user you created

 

And a drop down box to remember the password.

 

As I said I manage 6 WordPress blogs and use the feature all the time so I know it works.

That's exactly what I've been using and it gives me:

I see the images and that's bizarre. Try just your domain name with out the ftp. and see what happens. If it still changes the path please open a ticket with the help desk and have them take a look at it.

Without the http:// part: Failed to connect to FTP Server sigsnmore.com/://sigsnmore.com/

With the http:// part: Failed to connect to FTP Server http://sigsnmore.com

 

I think I might have to open a ticket. :(

Maybe it has something to do with using version 2.7 beta 3. I do not run beta software on my sites.

It works on my other hosted site, but its with a different company.

I guess that *could* be part of it, but I like 2.7 too much to go back to 2.6, :(

I'll just wait. It's only Akismet needing an update, and since it's just that site saying it needs an update, I'll wait and see if the new, non-beta version has the same problem.
