Are you getting the FTP prompt below when trying to add themes or plugins in a newly created WordPress EC2 instance and do not want to setup and/or maintain FTP?

If so and you do not want to setup and/or maintain FTP services do this simple step.
Putty into your newly created instance and type:

sudo su
sudo chown –R apache:apache /var/www/html

This will change the owner to the Apache service allowing for HTTP theme and plugin changes.
Log back into WordPress and now you can update and add any Themes and/or plugin via HTTP!
