WordPress update without FTP

When I want to install upgrade / theme into wordpress, some of my server request me to input FTP connection setting, the others don’t. The problem is, my server don’t have a FTP account.

I’m trying to figure out, what’s the difference in setting, but i cannot find any. Luckily today i found a way to force wordpress NOT using the FTP method.

You just need to edit the wp-config.php. Add this line

define('FS_METHOD' , 'direct');
