OK I'm really confused, I hope someone can help.
I've got WP running fine, but can't upgrade plugins or upload anything through the dashboard.
It's set up on a Linode server, and after pouring through the docs, there seems to be conflicting information.
Apache is configured to run as www-data:www-data
The wordpress install is under myusername:www-data
Changing Apache to run as myusername works but I've read it's not secure
Changing the permissions to 775 works but is apparently also not secure
I've read http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions but it didn't really help me solve this problem.
Should I just chown the entire site to www-data?
