AWS EC2 WordPress Auto Update Failed


I am new to AWS EC2. Last week, I decided to try set up CentOS 5.4 instance on AWS EC2 Singapore. I installed Apache+MySQL+PHP+PureFTPd and set up virtual hosting. Then I installed WordPress and everything was working until I tried to Add New Plugin within WordPress Admin.

Here's the error message...

"Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content)."

I also tested with Ubuntu 10.04 instance, still the same error with WordPress.

I have successfully set up LAMP web servers to run WordPress on Rackspace Cloud and Linode VPS. Now, I have no idea why it didn't work on EC2.

If you have successfully runing WordPress on EC2, please help me.

Instead of Pure-FTPd, I installed vsftpd. Still get "Unable to locate WordPress Content..." error message.

After more than 2 days of trial and errors, I found the cause of the WordPress FTP connection error. I did not open the ports for passive FTP.

Finally, I got vsftpd working with WordPress by opening ports 20-21 and 1024-1048.

Great job! I'd have tried to help you out if I noticed this thread. Trial and error paid off. Now you have what you want and can provide support for it in the future!
