Hi. First post here.
I have exactly the same problem as this thread with no responses
I have a localhost on Fedora. When I try to add/erase plugins or themes, it asks for FTP credentials. I input them and I get either one of these two messages: error connecting to server, check configuration; wrong password for that user.
I have tried both the root Fedora user and the standard user I am running at the moment. In vsftpd.conf I have local_enable=YES and anonymous_enable=YES.
I have tried to create a new user for FTP with: useradd ftpuser -d /var/www/sites/wordpress. It answers that the directory cannot be created.
I know that the problem is not related to SELinux, since it's set to permissive now.
Any suggestions please?
