1and1.com webhosting + wordpress and no auto update / themes / plugins upgrade

Welcome to my blog updating period!

I wanted to share how you can easily get rid of the problem with 1and1.com hosting and wordpress auto update on things like wordpress itself, plugins install, themes install. I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get wordpress to upgrade itself, but always got the page “Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.1.3.zip…” …. and nothing more. Just a blank page after that. After trying ftp methods and other crappy things to put in the wp config file , I finally found Adam Youngs blog. He have experienced the same, and have the solution to it on the link below. Just 2 simple operations and you and wordpress are playing together again!

I want to thank Adam for sharing this, it made my day!
