• I had a problem with the security on my Linux server set so nobody owned the Apache process but I owned the files on the server. I know there are many ways to fix this problem so you’re not required to enter FTP authentication info each time (including placing FTP authentication info in the wp-config), but that process was always way too slow for me. I needed a faster solution without changing ownership of the files or the Apache configuration. If you place this code in your wp-config.php above the /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ line, it will provide direct access to your files and allow you to upgrade plug-ins and the installation without an issue. The files need to be chmod to 777, which could introduce new issues for you. Happy blogging!

    define( ‘FS_CHMOD_DIR’, 0777 );
    define( ‘FS_CHMOD_FILE’, 0777 );[/html]
