In Ubuntu-Apache-Wordpress files under /var/www are owned by www-data user and www-data group.
If I login as root or other username I have to manually change ownership every time I upload files. I think it would be easier to just login as www-data.
What is the best practice here?
Is www-data some kind of special user?
What is the password for this user? Should I change it?
