Wordpress is asking for FTP for themes and plugin install

Wiz Kiran 6 years ago updated 6 years ago 2
Thanks to the help from all of you so far. My WordPress site is up and running. But when I try to install a new theme or plug in , it is asking for host name, FTP user name and FTP password. I did all installation through Ajenti but didn't see any option to configure FTP. Please shed some light on how to solve this issue.

Go to the File Manager, and change owner of Wordpress directory to www-data (recursively). This will allow Wordpress to manage itself without FTP. If you want FTP access, install ajenti-v-pureftpd package and look for FTP tab in website settings.
