Permissions issue:

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/

Any thoughts on how to get the correct permissions?
