I've ran into this issue where WordPress requests my FTP login credentials.
So far I've tried:
- change user
- change file permissions
- edited wp-config.php
None of it seems to work. The server I'm hosting it on is a VPS. I don't have much info from it. I am able to connect to my FTP using FileZilla but WordPress doesn't seem to be able to connect to it. Is there additional info I should request from my web host to properly set this up?
I haven't looked into httpd.conf yet. The owner of the public_html directory is root. I changed the permissions and owner to root. Is that the wrong practice?
I spoke to my server guy this morning, the server is listening to port 22 but on the hardware firewall, the public IP is nat from port 2232 to the server's port 22. But the server doesn't allow wordpress webui to enter 2232 (the port i'm using for SSH).
This is the additional bit I added to wp-config.php:
define( 'FTP_USER', 'root' ); define( 'FTP_PASS', 'ftp-password' ); define( 'FTP_HOST', '22.214.171.124:2232' );
