    Hi,

    So my question is why can I not install plugins on lion server install of wordpress, or more precisely how can I get this working?

    I have seen a couple of posts explaining why it is asking for ftp login (instance of wordpress not running as the same user as the owner of the files), but I don't know how to set this up. I have done the dseditgroup and launchctl from terminal but still no joy.

    how do I find out who wordpress is running as? Can I change who wordpress runs as?

    please help!

    hey songdog,

    thanks for that, I was missing this
    sudo chown -R _www ~/Sites/wordpress ; sudo chmod -R g+w ~/Sites/wordpress

    worked like a charm!
