A new WordPress site I installed won't update, it gives the ftp credential request. After Googling, I found an article that explains this occurs if Apache is not running as the user. After checking sites through the whoami command, I see that in the sites that work, Apache runs as the user for that site and on the site that does not work, Apache is running as apache.
Is this something I can fix, getting apache to run as the user? Or should I assume that I have messed something up horribly, delete the virtual server and start over again. I do have the WP files and database so this would not take too much time.
