If you run a self hosted server like me, or have access to the server there is no need for FTP.

Just make sure the permissions inside of /wp-content are writable by WordPress. And create Uploads Directory under /wp-content.


cd /var/www/html/
sudo mkdir wp-content/uploads && sudo chown www-data:root wp-content -R && sudo chown root wp-content/index.php
Then edit wp-config.php
nano /var/www/html/wp-config.php

Make sure there is no other line that starts with


and add this at the bottom

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');
