Wordpress always asking for FTP credential

Hey guys, 


When I try to install a new plugin or theme or update WP core, Wordpress is always asking for the FTP credentials.


Other symptoms :

  • I can't upload media (images, videos, etc.) anymore.
  • I can't update my styles.css file.
  • All this is done through the GUI.
  • Checked my CHMOD on the folders/sub-folders, everything seems to be OK. Even tried to change them to 777.
  • GoDaddy hosting GUI doesn't permit me to change the file privacy to Web Writable.

Anybody can help me on this one?

  1. Go to the GoDaddy hosting GUI
  2. Select the File Manager
  3. Check the folder named "wp-content"
  4. Click on "Privacy" button
  5. Uncheck the "Inherit" option
  6. Check the "Web writable" option
  7. Click on "OK"
