How to make wordpress autoupdate work on a debian server

In case you’re seeing a call to action to enter FTP credentials when you attempt to auto-update your wordpress, you just need to log into your server, cd into the blog’s webroot directory, and do this:

sudo chown -R www-data .

(replace www-data with whomever your apache user is if it’s not www-data.)

Yeah, that’s it.
