Solved: Wordpress upgrade

I want to (automatic) update my wordpress site,
But it asked for a ftp account ?
I'm not comfortable with giving the (root)-account.
I don't see why it is needed.

The plugins can get updated without a problem;
But for wordpress itself it is needed?

If the webserver-user has write access to the website directory,
an FTP-upload is not needed.

The following command should be enough:

Code: Select all

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/name-of-site

Code: Select all

chown -R apache:apache /var/www/name-of-site
The you can retry the automatic-update,
and it should continue.
