I'm wondering why WordPress isn't able to install or update themes and plugins. I can upload files thought. This is a permissions problem, even when I CHMOD 0777 on the wp-content/themes and wp-content/plugins directory it still doesn't work.
I know I've got something set up wrong, whether it's to do with my lighttpd set up or to do with the way I've set up permissions. I've checked lighttpd's conf and the user is www-data, however if I set CHOWN of the blog to www-data, I'm not able to edit the files through SSH.
So what can I do?
