I’m having a strange issue, wordpress is installed on CentOS 7, PHP-FPM, NGNIX. All seems to work fine, wordpress works, I can install plugins, and uload images etc… But when i try to update wordpress it peompts for FTP details, as it says files are not writable. In the health check plugin i see, The main WordPress directory Not writable The wp-content directory Writable The uploads directory Writable The plugins directory Writable The themes directory Writable
All Folders have the owner nginx, and all folder / file permsisions are correct. PHP / Nginx runs as the user nginx.
I’m guessing it’s a permission issue somewhere, but i just can’t see it. Even setting all folders to 777 has the same issue.
Has anyone any ideas?
