Wordpress 1-click install permissions

November 12, 2014 940 views

Hi,
I created a droptlet with the 1-click Wordpress install option.

I followed the instructions, created a user with admin privileges and I am able to create blogs and pages, no problem.

When I first tried to upload a media file, it shows an error saying I have no permission to the folder wp-content/uploads (which is not created in the install process, only when you try to upload a media file).

Why is that? How can that be fixed?

I have seen some questions about Wordpress permissions, but they seem to be regarding installations people did themselves from a clean Ubuntu or CentOs install or from a LAMP install.

I just found the solution:

But I still think this is something that DO should solve in its "1-click" install.
