When entering my Username and password to update to current version of wordpress I get this message "Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct."
Do you think my host is not compatable or something?
I think it’s more likely you have something wrong. FTP server, username, or password. I think if you have that right, but your host doesn’t allow it, there is usually some kind of different error about writeability.
You are right, had the wrong hostname. But now that I’m in it’s giving me this…
"Unable to locate WordPress directory. Installation Failed"
Does that mean manual install for me?
