I have just created my first droplet and am using Server Pilot to manage my server. Server Pilot’s uses a custom LAMP/LEMP stack. I followed their tutorial on installing Wordpress on my server here: https://serverpilot.io/community/articles/install-wordpress-on-ubuntu.html.
The installation went well and everything seemed fine, but when I tried to install or delete plugins, I was unable to do so, and I get a message on Wordpress that shows this:
“Connection Information To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server. Please enter your FTP credentials to proceed. If you do not remember your credentials, you should contact your web host.”
Server Pilot has tutorials on how to install plugins, but they never mention this big problem. If anyone can help me solve what is wrong here, I would be extremely grateful.
Thanks so much!
