    Hi there, Today i tried to use wordpress for the first time, and i uploaded all the files onto my Raspberry Pi (running a Debian Package) which was previously already running a website (Decided to change to wordpress).

    However, i was trying to install a them, and i noticed that wordpress didn’t have the rite permissions to create files etc. How do i go about fixing this, without CHMOD’ing it and allowing full access to my website. Is there any FTP setting’s in wordpress’ config file?

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks

  • Watch the end folder but its an ownership thing in /var/www
    You must be a root user in that folder using cd to locate where you are. You need basic terminal skills. Well maybe just a bit more.

    Asked for FTP settings when trying to install a plugin or a theme? This is usually caused by the instance not being able to access with the correct permissions. The fix is simple!

    pi$ cd /var/www
    pi$ sudo chown -R www-data:www-data wordpress.
    Raspberry pi as a tiny webserver with WordPress !!! Wow !

    “pi$ sudo chown -R www-data:www-data wordpress”
