Update wordpress file via dreamweaver sftp

  • Posted July 4, 2014

I have followed this tutorial

I can acces to wordpress and it works but I can’t update files with dreamweaver. I configure a site and it connect to the server and download files, but when I edit and upload it show me an error.

I have to say that in the tutorial, in the steps that I have to disallow Additional Apache Password Prompt for Admin Areas, I can’t safe my changes because it denied and tell me “are you root?”

The same problem if I try to install myphpadmin.

How can I do?

I have found the problem… I had to give the ownership of the directory to my user:

sudo chown username:www-data /var/www -R sudo chmod g+w /var/www -R

Thanks for your answer. It solve the issue of installing phpmyadmin and admin additional password but I continue having the same issue with sftp.

I can connect to server, download files and edit but I can upload the edited files. The error that show dreamweaver is in spanish but it is something like this “file activity incomplete. Not found 1 file or directory”.

“it show me an error.” we would need to know what error …

As for the other stuff, you need to type sudo before the commend to change the config or install phpmyadmin
