I just finished setting up Wordpress on my apache webserver, but now I'm having this problem which is pretty much preventing me from doing anything with my site. Whenever I try to install or update a plugin I always get the following error:
Which I know cant be possible because Im providing the correct credentials. When I try to update Wordpress to a newer version I get:
There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.
The credentials I'm using are as follows:
FTP username: fender
FTP password: the password for fender
I can connect via FTP using that same username and password with with Filezilla or any other SSH program with no problems, so I don't know why it isn't accepting the credentials. I thought it was maybe a permissions issue so I tried CHMOD 777 within the wordpress directoty and that still didn't work. I'm completely lost as to what may be the problem, and it cant be a hosting thing since it's my own server as well. I have even tried installing plugins manually via FTP(updraftplus to be specific) and it wont even show up on my plugins page after extracting the folder to the plugins directory. Any ideas?
