Support » Localhost Installs » wordpress permissions

  • No matter what I do I can only use wordpress with 777 permissions.
    After months of trying I finally figured out how to use my ftp username and password to login. However it still wont let me upload/update anything from the gui without a 777 file permission. I’ve been hacked 2 times in the last 2 days, and I know more is coming. Any help or advice would me appreciate

  • It looks like you are using apache2, the standard user that apache runs as is ww-data you will need to ensure www-data has recursive read + write privileges to the uploads directory.

    If you have ssh access to the server you can run the following on the the uploads directory :
    chown -R username:www-data && chmod -R g+rw uploads

    Please note the username section will be your ftp username.
