I have wordpress installed on a few servers. Some hosts I can just click to install plugins, updates, and themes. For example my cpanel server running php as suphp it works great. However on my basic lamp setup on ubuntu running php under DSO option it asks for FTP information for any updates/installs. Any insight into what settings are needed for the instant install options ie) not needing to enter ftp info. I suspect permissions since that is the big difference but even when I set everything 777 on the DSO/Ubuntu server it still asks for FTP info.. Been looking for a "perfect server setup" thread or post but I have not found anything yet. Any insight would be great.
