Troubles installing plugins or themes on WP with Xampp

Postby cronista » 18. November 2011 23:48

Hello, I'm working with Xampp on MAC OS X, and I can install WP with no problem. The problem is when I install a theme, or import an xml plugin, is forbiden!

I get the following error:

To Perform The requested action, WordPress Needs to access your web server. Please enter your FTP credentials to proceed. If you do not remember your credentials, contact You Should your web host.


What I put on WP sets is:

hostname: LocalServer
FTP user: root
FTP pass:
Conection Type: FTP

And nothing happens!
Anyone know what's up?

Spanish is not a language of these forums and anyone replying in Spanish would also be warned.

Permitted languages are English and German but only in the correct language forums.

New members should read the forum announcements before posting.

Now, what is hard to understand about that?

OK -

Are you working on the same machine, when you try to do a WP upgrade??? If so, the automatic upgrade will probably not work (I have the same issues on this machine) HOWEVER - if you login from another machine and run the Dashboard, you will likely be OK.

BTW, your English is very good.

My problem is when I need to import themes or plugins in my machine. Or import "xml" of my older WP site, that have a lot of created pages and post.

When you are on the machine, you can just download the file, extract and copy it to the right location. (of course, set the right owner and permissions)

Good Luck

I try several times to do so. But now, I have the same themes and plugins instaled on my localhost, and I changed the user password for bb-config (the file of "budyPress" on the root of WP) and this is the message:

Broken Themes

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
Name Description
BuddyPress Widget Theme The parent theme is missing. Please install the "bp-default" parent theme.


I dont know if I need to change something else.

thanks my friend!

I don't know the answer there - what version are you on?

I do have BuddyPress (V 1.02) installed, but I have it in its own folder under htdocs/bbpress. I never integrated it into that WP install.

you might ask over here -
