[Howto] enable direct updates in wordpress (disable ftp updates)

posted in: computer | 0

If you want to update wordpress themes or plugins and you are automatically redirected to the ftp-download-page, you can manually force wordpress to go in maintenance-mode and to download and update directly. For this you have to put the following definition in your wp-config.php

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

Afterwards try again and it should work.
