What are the best linux permissions to use for my website?
I'm having an issue that I can't seem to find an answer for, i've already scoured Google & SF and haven't found an answer, i've fixed this before by changing ownership, but i'm not sure how I did it in the past.
I am doing my WordPress development in a Kubuntu VM, where I have a LAMP setup (installed through tasksel for ease of installation). When I go to try to update/install any plugins (or presumably themes), it does the thing that it asks for the FTP credentials.
All of my production servers run NGINX, so this isn't a huge deal as I know how to set up an LEMP environment to run all of the WP functionality that I need.
I also changed ownership before of the /var/www directory to me (admin user), so I didn't have to type 'sudo' every time that I edited a file, as that is an unnecessary inconvenience.
I'm not completely sure how to fix this, and would REALLY appreciate everyone's help on this.
Thanks in advance
