Cannot upgrade – WP wants FTP access
I’m trying to upgrade WP to the latest version, but it doesn’t want to work. When I click on “Update now”, expecting it to update automatically like always, it gives me this message:
To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server. Please enter your FTP credentials to proceed. If you do not remember your credentials, you should contact your web host.
1) I don’t have FTP-acess. I have SSH access only.
2) I don’t have a webhost, this is my own server.
3) Forget 1 and 2! Why does this happen in the first place? The user apache is running as, has full read/write/delete/create access in all directories starting at the root of the website. I checked this myself in a shell and it works beautifully. I don’t understand why WP assumes it won’t.
Can I access some kind of log that might explain what it is trying to do *exactly*, and what *exactly* fails and causes it to fallback?
