Let me say from the beginning... I AM A NOOBIE.

I"m trying to ftp files into the appliance but cannot seem to do so.  Any advice is appreciated.

By default, there is no FTP daemon installed, but you can install one, for example:
apt-get update
apt-get install ftpd
On the other hand, there are other ways of transfering files to the appliance, via the webmin upload option or via SSH (some ftp clients support a "secure ftp" option which uses SSH).

I personally prefer using ssh+rsync, see this forum post for some more info.

Hope the above helps.
Good luck!

Hi,

you can also use the solution seen there:

Works like a charm :)

Any hope of having this sweet hack integrated at appliance install?

Cheers

There is a newer one that discusses this issue (and mentions your point too) over here. You also need to ensure that the webserver has ownership of /var/www/wordpress/wp-content/
