I just installed WordPress 3.5.2 on an Amazon Linux AMI EC2 micro instance. When I tried to install the wp-db-backup plugin (Plugins -> Add New), I was prompted for a Hostname, FTP Username, FTP Password and Connection Type.

I'm using CentOS 6.3 locally, and an Amazon Linux AMI on EC2.

Any assistance/guidance will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I had stumbled upon a similar kind of problem. I found out that the issue was the apache did not have access to the folders. Running the following command in my terminal resolved it:

sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html

if this doesn't work, try replacing "apache" with "www-data" and you'll be good to go.
