I have switched hosting over to a Dedicated Virtual (DV) server at Media Temple. I am having some issue configuring the ftp for updating plugins, wp etc. Basically, it's coming back with a function error that the script doesn't have permissions to write to the directory tmp. I'm not sure where this directory is temporarily located and what I should be changing the permissions to. I'm sure it's a really simple change, but not sure where to begin.
Any other tips on which folders to make writable and which to harden for setting up WP on DV would be apprecviated. Thanks!
