Updating iis

Essentially you have two options: Hi many thanks for your reply.

The reply by mauri fixes the updating issue for me (by bypassing the need to use ftp credentials).

However one of the things I often hear from web administrators is “why are the changes I have made in the application Host.config not showing up in IIS”.

Though there could be multiple reasons for this, the most common reason is using a 32 bit editor to modify the application Host.confg on a 64 bit OS.

I try putting in the credential values but keep getting no response or - IUSR -site password etc etc). I have asked for help with this on Word Press forum, Word Press codex, IIS7 forum, googled & tweeted for help to fix this and found no answer!

For large or repetitive tasks in IIS (migrating sites, adding additional site bindings, etc.), modifying the applicaion Host.config can prove to be much simpler and efficient than using IIS Manager .

What I really want is to enter the correct ftp credentials for Word Press on IIS and have it work and autoupdate to the latest version.

Does anyone know what ftp credentials I have to use to get this done please?

I would also like to know how to set my IIS up so when asked for the ftp credentials I can put in the info & have it work that way too!

However very many thanks for your very helpful reply Thank you for the clarification on IIS Permissions for my Word Press site.
