Trouble installing Dashboard plugin

I had a devil of a time doing a manual install for a WP at sadfund.org and I would like to add it to my WPMU managed sites, but I get a 500 error when trying to upload the plugin. I have seen other strange errors on the site and it keeps asking me to enter FTP information. I can supply login info privately if needed. Permissions issue maybe? The server is an old Windows

    Hello _elijah_

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    On some server installation, WordPress system asks for FTP credentials to install plugin, we can eliminate this popuup for every time by adding these lines in your wp-config.php file.

    define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' );
    
    //replace only these below constants values to real credentials
    define( 'FTP_USER', 'username' );
    define( 'FTP_PASS', 'password' );
    define( 'FTP_HOST', 'ftp.example.org' );

    Please replace above constants values to real credentials and add these lines in your wp-config.php file just above the line saying /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Let me know how it goes. :slight_smile:
    Cheers,
