Permission problems in Wordpress (Lemp+Ubuntu 14.04+WP)

  • Posted September 16, 2014

Hi all!

Thanks to the fantastic community that are here i managed to install LEMP in ubuntu 14.04 and Wordpress.

Everything perfect, until you i try to handle wordpress backend. I can’t install themes or plugin, if i try manually via sftp the theme don’t show in wordpress menu and if i try to upload via wordpress i get a message: “FTP or SSH credentials to proceed…”

How can i free wordpress of permissions as when I was in apache for working comfortable ?

Thank you very much!!

I tried installing Wordpress (on ubuntu 14) “in one click” and no problem when installing plugins or themes.

How I can get this in my custom installation with lemp without problems of permissions like the “one click application” version ?

Thanks again!!!
