I am using a debian webserver 100% ssh (no hosting control panel).
To Get WordPress downloaded - I used wget on my SSH username (not root - I do have sudo).
Then extracted it - went to install it and the installer could not write the wp-config file.
Couple of things:
the files are assigned to nobody:nogroup
URL structure is /var/www/domain.com/public_html.
Any thoughts on how to get the correct permissions?
