I have WordPress installed on my own dedicated box, but when I try to install a plugin it asks for FTP information. I know there's certain permissions I need to have in place for it to not ask and just install, but I haven't figured it out yet. I have root access to my box.
So far I've tried to:
chown the wp-content folder to www-data
set the permissions of wp-content to 777 and 755
I'm not sure what else I can do to get this to work. Any help?
