how do I fix permission errors on a new digital ocean 1 click install?
Hello to all. I successfully installed wordpress using the tutorial located at
Worked like a dream, except I can’t import my xml file full of posts. I successfully migrated the wp-content directory from one server to another last night but when I went to import the xml file,I got he error that it was unable to write to wp-content/uploads/2016/04
I know it’s a permissions issue but trying
Sudo chown apache:apache uploads/
failed with unknown user apache:apache.
It now turns out that I’m having issues updating the plugins due to similar permission errors. I think the two might be related. Here is an example of one of the errors when updating.
I don’t have visudo set up right now so am just doing everything as root. I know I know, not safe, but doing this at 11:45 at night I wanted to get as much done before I crashed for the night. By the way I’m not exactly a beginner with ubuntu, but I’m not at intermediate either. I do know kind of what I’m doing as I dabble in Unix and Jessie.
