    i created a new website.

    server1->example.com (not under any client or reseller)

    i created a new wordpress website from the aps installer. i left the wordpress installation directory empty. the installation went smooth without error. however after logging into the wordpress account, i am unable to make any changes because of permission issues.

    Is it a bug ? Please confirm.

    Ensure that you enabled the suexec checkbox in that website as required for any CMS system and that the php mode is php-fcgi or php-fpm.

    hi till,
    i checked now after post installation. suexec is checked and php mode is php-fpm. so i think the issue here is ispconfig setup expects a folder to be pointed so that it can setup the perms accordingly. so i pointed a folder wp1 before installation and now everything works fine. next time i will just mention . (dot) instead of a folder and see if that works.

    created a folder is desirable from the security point of view because spammers are going to bruteforce client-vhost.com/wp-login, so the new path client-vhost.com/wp1 is going to confuse them a little .. i guess.

    however, this scheme consists of an extra step where i have to redirect real visitor coming to the website client-vhost.com to client-vhost.com/wp somehow.

    thanks till once again. reverting ...
