WordPress asking for FTP login info

Just setup a TKL box: WOW WOW WOW. Makes MS and IIS look stuuuupid. That said, I am going to host several domains, and have had no problem setting up the virtual hosts, and creating the wordpress setup. The problem that I am encountering is that the default domain that I setup can install themes just fine, but while each subsequent virtual host that I setup works fine, when I try to install a theme, it asks for a FTP login setup. HUH?

Any ideas?

Silly man.... :) Didn't have write permissions on the domain folder :\

Glad you got it sorted!

And thanks for posting back. It may well save someone else some pain in the future :)
