    I tried to enable wp-optimize plugin on a website but get an error, saying that wp cannot write to disk. I found out that the files are owned by webxx:clientyy but wp-admin tries to access with www-data:www-data.
    I checked on a different website (same ispconfig server), there wp-admin is correctly working as webxx:clientyy.
    Where do I specify which user/group wp-admin belongs to?

    thanks, Stefan

    You have either chosen the wrong php mode or you disabled suexec.

    Switch PHP mode to php-fpm in the website settings and ensure that the suexec checkbox is enabled.

    thanks, both was set, but disabling suexec and enabling again solved the problem.
