I have installed wordpress on my ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition and I am trying to install plugin from the browser (I know I can drop it to the wp-content/plugin but I want to do it via the web browser using FTP) I get this screen when I am trying to set auto update or install a plugin from web browser.
I provide the hostname 127.0.0.1 and Username and password the ones that I use to login to wordpress. I get the error
Username/password Incorrect and cannot connect to 127.0.0.1:20
I think i'll have to grant a user with ftp password but I dont know how. I have already installed vsftp but when I try "ftp 127.0.0.1" I get -
gaurav@gaurav-desktop:~$ ftp 127.0.0.1
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
220 (vsFTPd 2.3.0)
Name (127.0.0.1:gaurav): root
331 Please specify the password.
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed. ftp>
Wordpress is running locally on my Ubuntu Desktop.
