I have root access in ssh to my install (and other wp install working) so im not sure what i missed...

installing plugins through the wp-admin interface, it wants me to input ftp. i remember this from before, a long time ago.

anyway, i tried already various things like chown and chgrp everything to the user. added user to www-data group chown'ed to www-data chmod 755 (even 777 the plugins dir to check!)

nothing works! what did i miss?


yes, of course i just figured it out. chown = username chgrp = www-data

in other words: chown -R username:www-data dir_containing_all_wordpress/
