Updating modules and themes requires ftp access to your server Suomi sexweb cam
If you answer me like that, you had or need the permission to control your server.
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this kind of questions, if not please let me know.
Some schools and networks block (S)FTP connections, and you will need to request the ability to use (S)FTP connections (port 21 for FTP, port 22 for SFTP).
Sometimes it can take a while to complete the upload of Word Press.
When automatically upgrading, installing or updating a theme or plugin or the Word Press core, Word Press needs to make changes to the file system.
Before making any changes, Word Press first checks to see whether or not it has access to directly manipulate the file system.
I saw that message after move all my hosting files from default location to other place that allows my website running on VPS with lower permission to increase the security.

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct'); define('FTP_BASE', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/'); define('FTP_CONTENT_DIR', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/'); define('FTP_PLUGIN_DIR ', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/'); // define('FTP_PUBKEY', '/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pub'); // define('FTP_PRIKEY', '/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa'); define('FTP_USER', 'my-ftp-username'); define('FTP_PASS', 'my-ftp-password'); define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp.my-site.example.com'); // define('FTP_SSL', false); Moving on.
Word Press is picky about file ownerships and who can do what with those files.
If your server uses a different username than what wordpress expects for the site it won’t allow it access without you providing those FTP login credentials every time you need to add, delete or upgrade a plugin.
First off, you will need to open up your file (which if you are doing things right will be one directory above your sites root directory) and in this file you just simply have to add your ftp loing information and you will never have to type it in again, so without further ado heres the bit of code you want to add to your file.
and a form is prompting you to enter FTP information when doing updates, delete, install new themes or plugins?
That said, if you have a large site, the upgrade process may take longer than expected, in which case an incremental approach may help.
