Unable to update plugins


#1

Hi,

It’s been one week since I installed EasyEngine during migrating a bunch of Wordpress blogs over to DigitalOcean with excellent results!

Today I tried updating some plugins, but the updates fail due to inability to remove the old plugin version/directory. I faced the same issue at WPEngine where a ‘reset permissions’ trick solved it. How can I do that in SSH now by myself running on EasyEngine?

Regards,
Jim

Hey Jim,

I had the same problem. Was solved by doing a CHOWN - R command so as to give the new nginx installation ownership of the files and folders. Lost the link, but sure that someone in the digitalocean community forums answered it accurately.

Hi Jim
Just change ownership of your webroot to www-data user by chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/.
