I believe that I have searched long and hard and I haven't found an answer to my issue I'm experiencing.
I have Virtualmin and Webmin installed on a VPS running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have a Wordpress site running on Virtualmin successfully, but there appear to be some permission issues.
I cannot update any plugins, I am presented with a page requesting that I input FTP details. I am also unable to add any items to any menus.
I have tried to set the user and group to the user defined in the virtual server in Virtualmin in the /var/www folder. I have also tried to set the user and group to, www-data:www-data and root:root. With www-data:www-data set I am able to update plugins.
I am not sure where the issue may be, and I've spent quite a bit of time now trying to figure it out.
Please could you let me know what the problem may be? Please let me know if you require anything to help. I'd appreciate any assistance.
