Support » Installing WordPress » Apache File Ownership Problem?

  • Resolved mchelles

    (@mchelles)


    Just installed WordPress on a VPS and when trying to install new plugins I am being asked for FTP info and found this line in Codex which I think explains what is wrong with my setup, but I don’t know how to fix it:

    Note that your files all need to be owned by the user under which your Apache server executes, or you will receive a dialog box asking for “connection information,” and you will find that no matter what you enter, it won’t work.

    Here is what I copied from my DirectAdmin control panel if any of this info is useful:

    Apache 2.2.14 Running
    DirectAdmin 1.36.2 Running
    Exim 4.67 Running
    MySQL 5.0.67 Running
    Named 9.3.4 Running
    ProFTPd 1.3.1 Running
    sshd Running
    dovecot 1.2.8 Running
    Php 5.2.11 Installed

    If anyone knows how to fix this I greatly appreciate the help.
