I can’t install extension into my joomla site because there’s no write privileges. I’m using serverpilot with ubuntu 12.04.

You need to grant Joomla permission to write to /srv/users/serverpilot/app/joomla:

sudo chown -R serverpilot:serverpilot /srv/users/serverpilot/app/joomla

Replace joomla with your app’s name.
