I uploaded a couple of untouched Wordpress directories to my server and named them wordpress1, wordpress2, wordpress3 and so on. The reason behind is that I have a slow Internet Connection at home and when I had a fast Connection, I uploaded them to have them ready, when I need them.
So I renamed wordpress1 to new_website and started the install, connected to the database and all was set. I can create posts and pages. However, an upload of a file is not possible as Long as wp-uploads is not set to chmod 777. 755 is not working.
Same with changing the permalinks structure. Wordpress can't write the .htaccess file, except I chmod 777 the wordpress directory.
When I want to install a plugin, I always have to enter my FTP information so it can install.
I have other installations running on the same webspace without any issues. However, I didn't use the rename thing
Any clues what I could do here?
