WHM/CPanel: Letting WordPress Users Install Themes and Plugins Without FTP Credentials

wordpress-logo-tealQuick answer: Put this in the user’s wp-config.php file:

define(‘FS_METHOD’, ‘direct’);

and it results in a non-suPHP cPanel server to allow the user-friendly plugin/theme installer to work.

The other option would be to switch to “SuPHP” however from experience that “switch” kills WordPress websites. The wp-config edit is much safer and works.
