Whenever I try to use an automatic feature of WordPress on my MAMP local host (such as installing a plugin, theme or updating WP) I get asked for my FTP credentials, including my password. HUH? I didn't know I had set one up and I don't know what it would be. I tried my user password for the OS but that didn't seem to work. I don't recall such an option when I set up MAMP, nor do I find such an option in the MAMP Pro control panel. I'm too new to this to know what is going on. Can anyone help, please?

No problem. I didn't even think to mention the version of the OS I'm using 'cuz I didn't realize it was gonna be significant.
