    Installed latest beta centminmod on a DO 512MB droplet. I then install wordpress on it.
    So far so good.

    I can use ftp program to access the site using domain name, root and the password (same as ssh password) to connect to the server.

    However, when I use the same credentials to install WP plugins, it said the login data is not correct. I read that there are new ftp user created in the latest centminmod. Tried that too.
    When I do
    Code:
    #pure-pw list
    beamxxx            /home/nginx/domains/domain.org/./
    #pure-pw show beamxxx
    
    Login              : beam1511
    Password           : xxxxxxWbHYrbVtX1
    UID                : 1000 (nginx)
    GID                : 1000 (nginx)
    Directory          : /home/nginx/domains/domain.org/./
    Full name          :

    Max files          : 0 (unlimited)
    Max size           : 0 Mb (unlimited)
    Ratio              : 0:0 (unlimited:unlimited)

    Allowed client IPs :
    Denied  client IPs :
    Time restrictions  : 0000-0000 (unlimited)
    Max sim sessions   : 0 (unlimited)
    Do I have to do something?

    honestly haven't tried wordpress updates with pure-ftpd virtual ftp user yet myself heh

    but first thing is to look and make sure directory and file permissions and user/group (nginx:nginx) are properly set in /home/nginx/domains/domain.org and it's wordpress specific directories.

    what about How to Update WordPress Automatically Without Using FTP [Quicktip] does that work ?
