Hi there, I've recently installed Joomla and Wordpress on my Plesk 10, CentOS 5.4 64 server. Both have required permission changes to get them working, especially Wordpress. There are the naughty kind of permission changes too, 777. In looking at this more, Wordpress wants to be able to overwrite all the files within the web directory, for upgrades and theme and plugin installations. Quick references: http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions For Wordpess, all of your files "need to be owned by the user under which your Apache server executes." I don't think this is the case with Plesk. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Does anyone know of a way to "fix" (resolve, change) this to avoid 777s and permission issues? Thank you, James Edit: I wanted to point out that original PHP was running as a php module, but then I changed it to FastCGI for this account. Wordpress was still unable to ugprade itself.
