I am new to Linux, but got my hand on an Ubuntu machine, I install
vsftpd after following some tutorial.
With Apache I got my Wordpress running, and ftp works fine too. Now I face a problem that I am not sure how to resolve. The Problem is when I try to activate the Permalink it doesn't activate as it cannot write to the
.htaccess file. Similarly
wp-cache plugin fails to create cache folder or write to the
.htaccess file as needed.
so I opted to give
777 permission to my
wp-content folder and as soon as I do that, it simply disables all my plugins saying
no file exists for plugin.
Please suggest what should I do to fix this problem?
EDIT: I fix it by making www-data as user for vsftpd as well, so I got common user to run apache and vsftpd. this solve problem as now I don't have to create different groups or permissions.
