Seeing this error? “WooCommerce: To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server”
This permissions issue haunts me after every new WordPress install. There’s a one-liner fix that doesn’t involve 777’ing your whole server.
Here’s the magic cure:
- Open wp-config.php
define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' );
at the end
- Save and close, install plugins!
