    I have successfully installed wordpress on Amazon Server.

    I followed this link as a guideline for installation on Amazon.
    http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/hosting-wordpress.html

    I followed the instructions under To fix file permissions for the Apache web server without any success. I was still unable to upload or update from admin panel.

    Nevertheless I did a little of bit of more search and I tried installing vsftpd and creating an "ftpuser" account without success too.
