This question already has an answer here:

I know that the question was asked thousand times. I'm trying to install Wordpress. My folder is in /www/html/wordpress. I have downlowded the project manually from wordpress site. In wp-in config.php my configuration is fine (I have other project with the same configuration, just db name is different). I set all the permissions to 755. I have configured the sites-avaiable (the virtualHost works when I test with some random index.html). Can someone tell me what else I can check ?

Are all directories and files owned by www-data? The web server can only access them if he owns them. If not just do a

 $> sudo chown -R www-data:www-data wordpress/
  • I'm agree that, for regular setup, www-data must own the content of the WP's DocumentRoot, but The web server can only access them if it own them. is not correct statement :) – pa4080 Aug 1 at 17:27
