I need to temporarily allow write access to webapps/app/wp-content/ for a wordpress plugin called W3 Total Cache. I cannot install it fully until I am allowed access. After I install the application, I can disable this setting. I attempted to change the access to wp-content and nothing happened. What can I do?

You have full control over setting permissions to that file. You can also set permissions using setfacl, as shown here:

http://docs.webfaction.com/software/general.html#setting-file-permissions

Are you getting any errors when you try to install the plugin? It could be that Apache specifically needs access to that folder. You can add Apache access by entering:

setfacl -m d:u:apache:rwx ~/webapps/app/wp-content/

If that doesn't work, please open a support ticket and we can take a look at the directory.
