The real scoop on WordPress ‘Connections Information’ request for FTP info

The last few versions of WordPress have had a feature that lets you install or upgrade a plugin directly through the WordPress GUI. There’s just a small problem — for many people, the process fails and, instead of explaining the issue, WordPress redirects to an inscrutable “Connections Information” screen requesting FTP server credentials. Which, for people like me who don’t use FTP, is kind of a dead end.

I deploy all my code through a VCS, so it wasn’t until I started testing activation/deactivation/uninstall hooks for a plugin that I ran into the problem. Anyway, the reason I’m writing this post is that, while the workaround is just a one-liner, unfortunately, most of the “solutions” I found on the web were wrong or at best incomplete.

Minify for WordPress and WP Super Cache

I’ve integrated Minify and all its bandwidth-saving goodness into WP Super Cache, everyone’s favorite way of sending WordPress pages as super-fast static HTML, thereby saving visitors having to hit up the PHP interpreter (ugh!) or WordPress itself (double ugh!).

What does this mean? Well, it means your HTML (and gzipped HTML) pages can be 5-20% smaller with just a few minutes’ setup. If that sounds good, skip to the install instructions. If you want to hear more blabber first, read on. more …
