Q: How to upgrade/add plugins and themes without using main cPanel username and password??

Every time you update/add plugins and themes Oxwall asks you to enter FTP attributes: host name, control panel username and password. In case you don't want to give out this information you can set separate FTP accounts with access to only needed data on you server.

Requirements: access to your control panel, access to admin panel.

Important!!!: Make sure that your FTP domain (ftp.yourdomain.com) is valid. OR use localhost instead

If you Oxwall site is installed under your main domain name:

1. Log in to your control panel>FTP Accounts 2. Create new FTP account. Make sure the directory option in the ftp form shows public_html (the default will show public_html/name. Remove the name ( highlighted in red on screen shot) so that it is just public_html.

   Also when you are presented with the update form in oxwall you need to change local host to ftp.yoursite.com  and then enter the username as [email protected] and then enter the  pw for that ftp account.

Example: if an ftp account is named [email protected] Then for the host change local host to ftp.yoursite.com and the the username will be [email protected] and then the password for that ftp account, keep the port 21
