    I have tried to understand how permissions work through plesk but cannot figure it out. Specifically I need to grant write permissions so my wordpress blogs will be able to function properly and allow updates. Can anyone help me with choosing the correct directory and user I need to update permissions on and what permissions I should set for them?

    Thanks
    Bob

    Why you cant install and use Wordpress from Application Vault by default? There is possibility for update too.

    How would that help with permissions?

    Why do you think that it doesn't work properly by default installation from Application Vault?

    I have a similar issue.

    Have installed WP from the vault.

    Have loaded a theme from WP admin panel.

    Some graphics need to be changed,
    but I can't access the respective folder
    via FTP or Plesk file manager due to permission restrictions.

    Even Plesk file manager can't change permissions of the respective folder.

    I have root permissions on the server.

    If you login as root, is there a problem with setting permissions as they would ordinarily be on shared hosting?

    just clicking on the permissions (within plesk) seems to instantly change the owner to root
