I was wondering if a TRUE FTP can be implimented in your next release of Turnkey linux LAMP stack, Wordpress does not support SFTP, and so I cannot auto install plugins and updates through the wordpress interface.

I am guessing that you are getting an error message when you try to use the auto upgrade? IIRC this can be worked around by ensuring that the WordPress folder is owned by the web server. Assuming that you have WordPress installed to /var/www/wordpress:

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/wordpress

And ensure that the wp-content folder (assuming above install dir, I think it should be /var/www/wordpress/wp-content) has write permissions:

chmod -R 775 /var/www/wordpress/wp-content

Then you should be good to go...

Generally you shouldn't need plain FTP in a dedicated server (unless you actually want to operate a 'plain' FTP server...)
