Drupal powered by Bitnami-7-27-0 on Ubuntu 12-04-3
This question has been asked several years ago on the forum, but I am reluctant to start changing owners of folders through the terminal absent some current feedback. The site has been running a long time, but sometime ago stopped allowing updates of modules by requiring FTP login information, and no combination of usernames or passwords appears to grant permissions. I have no trouble getting into the installation through the terminal/SSH (using ppk), but do not want to use that for updating modules. The question is whether there is some way to modify the installation so that Drupal module updater will stop requesting database permissions.
Happy to provide more information as required. Thx
