Install Plugins And Update WordPress On Localhost Without FTP Account

When working on WordPress websites locally the common problem we had is not being able to install plugins from within the plugin backend page. When you try to install a plugin you’re asked to enter FTP credentials to proceed (the ‘FTP connection details’ fields). To resolve this issue; we can simply add the following code to the wp-config.php to let WordPress use a different filesystem method than FTP.

This setting also allow you to update WordPress Core and install themes from the theme repository locally.
