Fix plugins and themes installation when WordPress asks for FTP credentials

When WordPress doesn’t have the right premissions on the wp-content folder it will ask for your FTP credentials every time you try to install/uninstall/update a plugin or a theme.

ftp-credentials

This is easily fixed by just adding this to your wp-content.php file:

define('FS_METHOD','direct');
