dso wordpress install issues

  • Answered
Hi - I have installed a new cpanel for a wp site and have issues with permissions - techs at in motion say its because I am using an older handler for all my accounts, as I have been with in motion for some time.

I was told I can get around this by using a define statements in my wp-config file for FTP login info. Is this true? and how to configure this correctly as I cannot get this to work - I am on a VPS account.
Hello rbd, Thank you for contacting us about DSO issues when installing WordPress. The following are the define statements for your wp-config:
define('FS_METHOD', 'ftpext');
define('FTP_BASE', '/var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/');
define('FTP_USER', 'username');
define('FTP_PASS', 'password');
define('FTP_HOST', 'host');
define('FTP_SSL', false);
You will have to update this code as needed for your specific site, and go through standard WordPress testing since all sites differ. Let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you, John-Paul
