If you run into problems with updating WordPress, or installing new plugins, while running XAMPP on OS X, here is a solution that works for me.

Keep in mind that this is OK to do in a local development environment, which is primarily where you would use XAMPP. 

Locate your XAMPP, htdocs folder, and your WordPress web site.  All user content, including downloaded plugins, themes, as well as your files and resources are all stored under the wp-content folder.  When upgrading WordPress or downloading updates to plugins, this folder is also used to temporarily store the downloads.  Therefore, this folder requires read and write permissions in order to work properly.

There are numerous ways to change permissions on a folder, with the most common being the CHMOD command (terminal window).  However, the easiest, is the visual approach in OS X.  

Right-click over the wp-content folder, and select "Get Info".
From the panel that appears, scroll down to "Sharing & Permissions", and expand it.  Locate the "Everyone" user, and change that user's permission from "Read Only" to "Read & Write".  

That should do it, and your site should now be able to update itself automatically.

Hmmm..  could you try the solution listed here:  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9046977/xampp-permissions-on-mac-os-x  

It's very similar, but also applies to subfolders.  Basically, you should get to a point where you are NOT required at all to enter any credentials when you update WordPress or any plugin.

Hello everyone,

My name is Alex, and I've been working with computer hardware, and as a software developer for over 20 years now.  

I also teach during the evenings, and currently, trying to get the funds needed to create a computer hardware course.  It will be a complete course that outlines the architecture of a PC, and helps you get a better handle on building or upgrading your computer.   If anyone is interested, here is the link:

Thank you,
Alex
