Support » Localhost Installs » Permissions & Ownership Issue

  • I’ll try to outline this as well as I can:

    I have a Kubuntu VM running a LAMP configuratin, nothing fancy, a vhost with and the correct hosts edit to make the changes work correctly. I installed WordPress, and can log in, everything works relatively fine.

    I get into the updates page, and it asks for my ftp creds. I then type in
    chown -R www-data
    That fixes the issue, no problem.

    The issue now, is that I have to now type in sudo as a prefix to everything I do, and this is a pain. What do I need to do to fix this?

    I’m not quite sure how the question relates to WordPress in this case, or the file permissions in your /www directory, but “sudo -i” will probably allow you to work in a terminal session without the need to prefix each command with sudo. You can check it in sudo manpage to be sure.
