Wordpress - Plugin Install Asks for FTP Details

When we install WP on Linux Mint every thing works fine but however I try to install theme or plugin, WP asks for FTP details. To solve this problem we  can run following commend on terminal.

root@pc_name~$ cd /var/www/html/
root@pc_name  /var/www/html $ sudo chown -R www-data:www-data wordpress
[sudo] password for root:
root@pc_name  /var/www/html $

After execute above code the problem will solve. Now you can install theme or plugins without any problem.

For any question on this topics please write on comment box.
