I set up WordPress on a Ubuntu server and used this tutorial to add extra security https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-secure-updates-and-installations-in-wordpress-on-ubuntu
I’m having a hard time with some plugins saying they can’t write to folders. I’m trying to install a backup plugin and it says it can’t write to the backups folder even though it is showing as 755.
Here’s what I have for ownership - I think I may have my owners and groups in a muddle.
Can anyone help me make sure they are set up properly?
