RESOLVED: FTP user permissions
« on: December 02, 2014, 10:55:12 am »
It has happened with 2 clients to create the account, it appears that do not receive the necessary permissions to use the ftp, so you have problems updating wordpress and other things.
It may or am I wrong?

I'm using Ubuntu Server 14.04 (fresh install) 64 bits and the latest stable version.

Could you please tell me the owner and group on the folders that clients are having issues with?  Also, what are the chmod permissions?

Permissions should work correctly out of the box so that wordpress and other applications update properly.

I have installed EHCPForce on a new pc and again i have the same problem.
I just create a user and the user upload the files that he needs to install wordpress.. and again the problems with htaccess and update pluggins.
Don't have permissions to do nothing.
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bits

I'll need more information than that.

Post the output of:

Code: [Select]
ls -alhi /var/www/vhosts

The owner of the files should be vsftpd, and the group should be www-data.

If they're not, run the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo chown vsftpd:www-data -R /var/www/vhosts
sudo chmod 775 -R /var/www/vhosts

From what I'm seeing, I'd be all right

Please run the following command and paste the output here:

Code: [Select]
sudo cat /etc/apache2/envvars | grep "APACHE_RUN_USER"

Was the user able to upload the files to the server without issue via FTP?  What exactly is the problem here?  Is it that FTP file transfers are failing for some reason, or is not FTP related?  Is it WordPress related? 

Can you describe to me step by step how to reproduce this issue?  Like, go and download wordpress from here, setup user like this, and install this.  Then try doing this.  I really need more specifics here before I can help you because I cannot currently reproduce this issue.

Any updates on this?  I installed EHCP Force on a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machine and installed WordPress without any issues.
