How to fix “Connection Information” requirements on WordPress

Don’t worry! Let’s jump to the solution.

Step 1: Open wp-config.php

Now the first thing you need to do is to open wp-config.php file from your WordPress root folder (you may access this file from your WordPress installer folder). From the installation folder, the file is located at WordPress/wp-config.php

Step 2:  Insert FS_METHOD

Paste the following code to your wp-config.php file, preferably just below every other line of

define('FS_METHOD','direct');
Step 3: Save and upload

The FTP issue normally happens when you are on shared hosting and when WordPress is having a conflict with permissions and ownership.

With this ‘direct’ method implemented, you will be able to update or upgrade your WordPress and plugins installations to newer versions without having to provide any FTP details.
