hi, I had things working: - i created a wildcard top-level domain for wordpress multisite and for each alias user of the top-level server, - i ssh'd as the alias user and installed wordpress ---> wordpress multisite was working without having to input the FTP credentials and could add new items to media library
- then i did something and subsequently, in order to install a theme or plugin as the network admin, it requires FTP credentials.
- furthermore, uploads to the media library returns some error message about being unable to upload the file (after seeming uploading)
Running Centos 7.3, FCGid is the PHP execution.
doing some research, I 1. > Virtualmin > Limits and Validation -> Validate Virtual Servers -> Fix Permissions ==> no luck 2. chown -R aliasowner:aliasowner /home/top-level-vs/public_html ==> no luck 3. chown -R apache:apache /home/top-level-vs/public_html/wp-content ==> can now add new media library items 4. i didn't do anything with permissions - they all seemed good at either 755 or 750
so changing the ownership to apache gave me back the ability to add media library items. but i still have FTP credentials problem.
any suggestions is appreciated to eliminate the FTP credentials requirement.
