WordPress Non-FTP Upgrades

Annoyed by having to enter FTP credentials every time you update WordPress or any of it’s plugins? Put this in your wp-config.php:

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

Might not work for you, but you could try, it did for me. Thanks to this post.

By the way, if you still have problems updating, make sure you set the correct access rights for your directories in wp-content.
