Cannot update Wordpress plugins (file permission issues)?
I get: Update Failed: The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.
When trying to update plugins from the admin interface. I’ve set the user to www-data for both directories and files … but nothing works.
What do I have to do to simply being able to use Wordpress as it is intended?
