Support » Fixing WordPress » Can't get the right permissions / ownership setup?!

  • I have a set the following permissions on my WP install:

    find / -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
    find / -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;


    chmod -r g+w /
    chmod g+w /

    then added domainuser to the group (in /etc/group)



    chown -r domainuser:psacln httpdocs

    this allows me to upload images thru WordPress media uploader and upload files to the ftp, but I can’t update WP, or any plugins within WordPress auto updater.

    If I change ownership:

    chown -r apache httpdocs

    I can then update thru wordpress, but can’t upload files thru FTP?
