Unfortunately, our servers are configured for SFTP, which WP doesn’t support for automated upgrades…we do all upgrades/updates automatically.
Can you explain a bit more about this? How are you updating your non-CBOX plugins?
You might be interested in the following StackOverflow article, so you can use SFTP with WordPress without providing your credentials:
Let us know if that helps.
Unfortunately, when I went back into the install, it still gives me the “Commons In A Box is almost ready! You only have one last thing to do. We promise!” message and says that there is one plugin that needs updating. When I go into the plugin dashboard, it lists all plugins as being up to date.
When you refer to the plugin dashboard, are you referring to the CBOX plugins dashboard or the WP plugins page?
The one plugin could be related a non-wordpress.org plugin. What CBOX plugins do you have activated? It could either be Wiki, Group Announcements, External RSS Feeds for Groups or Reply By Email.
In that case, if you are still running into permissions issues, you can manually download the plugin you need to update from one of our Github repositories. Let me know which one in particular and I’ll provide you a link.
