Installing themes on wordpress requires FTP/SSH credentials
I’m asked to enter in FTP/SSH credentials for installing themes on Wordpress. I’ve installed the wordpress with nginx and SSH key, and I tried copying and pasting the private and public keys to the input boxes, but that didn’t work.
I’m using the root user and changed ownership of the directory
