Folder Ownership Permissions for WordPress Updates and SFTP?
When a WordPress installation folder is set to “www-data:www-data” then I am able to update/install WordPress updates and plugins but can edit the files using SFTP.
When a WordPress installation folder is set to “example:example” I can edit the wordpress files using SFTP but can’t perform WordPress core/plugin install/updates.
Currently have to switch between the two all the time. What permissions can one use to be able to do both? Assuming something along the lines of www-data:example or example:www-data or ideally example:example and add www-data to example group. All of which I’ve tried unsuccessfully, so assuming I’m missing a step. Can someone provide some sample commands to reach this commonly desired end goal? Thank you!
