    When i try to update plug ins on wordpress, on my 000webhost site it comes up with an error, what do i use as the 000webhost hostname?

    edit: nvm let this thread die, i just checked out the ftp details.. its simply the name of my site wakkaoaka.com

    well in theory that should have worked... oh well will update manually, /sigh

    third and final edit lol. Got it sorted yay! i forgot that my wp-admin user name is different to my ftp user name, at first when i tried the correct ftp username it said it couldnt connect, tried again and it worked. Im like a baby when it comes to hosting and ftp and all that jazz... must, learn :>

    sounds like it's looking for the MySQL hostname or something. Often times it's simply "localhost", but my hosing account is "mysql.myhostingcompany.com", so you would really have to check with them.
