I install a LAMP/Wordpress on Amazon EC2. The blog works fine. However on downloading themes, it asks me for FTP credentials. I try to chmod some folders but it didn't work.
I used to have a shared hosting for Wordpress and it never asked for FTP. So I think maybe there is some packages missing? So far I have installed:
apache2 php5 mysql-server phpmyadmin
I really don't want to install FTP server unless I have to.
