Correct permissions for WordPress on LEMP?
I'm confused about how to set permissions for a WordPress install. I've got it setup and running very well on ubuntu based droplet using LEMP. The only issue I'm having is getting permissions correct. I went for the normal: sudo chown www-data:www-data * -R sudo usermod -a -G www-data usernamehere That worked great, but stopped my user from creating files inside the WordPress install which I use for manually installing some plugins. I've also tried using: sudo chown usernamehere:www-data * -R However while that gives me permission it stops WP from uploading/updating. I've also used: sudo chmod g+s directoryname To make it so all files created in the folder by me are owned by the web server. Can anyone recommend a good permission setup that will allow my user to create files, allow WP to update & upload but doesn't introduce any security issues? I know a decent amount about web servers but permissions are my downfall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
