In WordPress 2.5.0 and 2.5.1, plugin automatic update was working properly via FTP. I then decided to try the FTP SSL option and received the error message
"Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct."
So apparently my server does not support FTP over SSL. So I disabled the SSL option by setting "Use SSL" to "No". However, I continued to receive the same connection error message as above. The message would appear no matter what was entered into the FTP configuration page.
I finally added the following line to my wp-config.php file:
This caused the SSL setting within the plugin FTP updater to be overwritten with the correct value. FTP updates of plugins began to again function properly after making this change.
