    Thanks for the reply. Here’s an example that does not meet those criteria:

    I’m working on a Windows 10 system that has a WordPress installation on a VirtualBox Ubuntu VM. The WP installation has my name as its file owner and I log in to admin on my name. Yet an attempt to install WooCommerce presents the FTP credentials screen. Not sure of the php process owner – it’s either me or www-data. The latter is unlikely to ever be the log in for a WP admin.
