I am trying to install the Total Cache plugin on a bitnami ami hosted on Amazon EC2. The problem is that I keep getting this error:
FTP credentials don't allow to write to file /.htaccess
W3 Total Cache Error: Files and directories could not be automatically created to complete the installation.
It suggests me to add this to the .htaccess file:
# BEGIN W3TC Browser Cache
Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary
# DEFLATE by extension
AddOutputFilter DEFLATE js css htm html xml
# END W3TC Browser Cache
I have tried by creating different .htaccess files in different directories but still not working. I have tried also with the httpd.conf files.
If I try to update the content with the integrated FTP action, it doesn't work either (FTP or SFTP). I have tried to update the password in the wp-config.php as suggested (by creating one via SSH first) but still doesn't work. What am I missing?
