Packages install permissions needed?
« on: March 16, 2019, 11:18:27 AM »
What should I do when i'm installing the package my forum and the forum want FTP details because need permissions?
I'm running the forum from localhost (VPS).
How can I change that permissions without FTP or how can I get FTP details to change automatically by the forum?

You need to change the files so that they are writable by the user who runs PHP, which depending on your server setup could be www-data or apache2.
