I've one question. I was trying to move WP content folder from default WP content directory.

I followed all instructions on

define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/public/content' );
define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', '' );

With this code I've moved wp-content folder to desired location but the problem I'm having is this that when I try to install any theme, plugin or upload any media file then it ask me FTP connection information have a look in this screenshot By entering info it doesn't work on both local & live web server.

How can I fix this? Where I'm making mistake?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @iamabdurrehman,

First, my apologies that it took so long for someone to get back to you. In the future, requests like these belong in the support forums.

Hopefully, you were able to figure out your issue, but from the details you provided, it seems like the folders you are now using do not have the correct owner or permissions.
