Automatic installations from WordPress hosted on Pair Networks

If you run WordPress on Pair Networks, automatic installations probably prompt you for FTP connection info.  The problem is that WP wants to modify files as the owner of the WP directory.  Follow Pair’s instructions to set up php-cgiwrap, and WordPress automatic installations will work.

cp /usr/www/cgi-bin/php5.cgi ~/public_html/cgi-bin/
chmod 755 ~/public_html/cgi-bin/php5.cgi

Edit .htaccess in your WordPress directory:

Action application/x-pair-sphp5 /cgi-sys/php-cgiwrap/USERNAME/php5.cgi
AddType application/x-pair-sphp5 .php
