Have you ever got the message
Connection Information and a form is prompting you to enter FTP information when doing updates, delete, install new themes or plugins? I usually get that message when I try to install new plugins and themes or update WordPress core , plugins or themes after every new WordPress installation in my mac. That was always annoying.
But after lots of research I’ve found a simple solution for this problem.
Change the folder permission:
- Right click on the WordPress installed folder and open “Get Info” window from them menu.
- Unlock the by clicking on the “padlock” icon at the bottom of the window
- Set “Privilege” as “Read & Write” for all users under the Sharing & Permissions section
- Click the “Cog” icon and select “Apply to enclosed items“.
- Close the Info window
Update Wp-config.php File:
- Open your wordpress’s
- Add this line code
- Save file.
Now try to update or install again. Problem Solved?
I really hope that helps someone, I spent ages being confused over this “thing”! If you have any more details or information, or if this works for you, then please add a comment below.
