Now that I have updated MySQL it’s time to make use of my webserver. So, as I want to try different themes for my other website, I shall install Wordpress.
The install went successfully but, when I logged in I was faced with an update. Already! – I had only downloaded the latest version two days ago. But, this does give me the opportunity to try out the Wordpress automatic update as I have never tried it on my home webserver before.
Download failed.: No working transports found
After a quick Google search I find out that It is the php CURL extension that performs data transfers and deals with HTTP and HTTPS requests.
So it is just a case of opening php.ini in a text editor, uncommenting extension=php_curl.dll and then restarting Apache.
Wordpress automatic upgrades now works.
