Hi there, I have softaculous installes on 2 servers. On the first server, when I install a wordpress site, i have no problems editing and updating. The second server however, when i try to update plugins, it asks for ftp info and when i try to edit a file with the wordpress editor it says:
You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information.
I have to change all the files to 777 so I can edit, then I change them back. It;s a real hasstle having to do that everytime i need to change something. Is there something i did wrong? How can I make it work like my first server thet edits and changes everything without having to change permissions?
Sir are you using suPHP ?
If you are using suPHP then you should configure these settings:
http://softaculous.com/docs/SuPHP_Settings and if you are not using suPHP then the CHMOD Files and CHMOD Directories in the above documentation should be blank.
