Make sure you have the correct ownership as username for the wp-content and upload folder.

Also the folder permission will be 755 and file permission will be 644.

Once you have correct ownership and permissions for file and folders. It will not ask for FTP details.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

The issue you described seems like a limitation of the PHP handler configured on your system. What's your ticket number?

Thank you.
