Wordpress wp-config local dev FTP file permissions

I have encountered problems downloading and installing plugins and themes in a WP local dev environment. This can easily be fixed by adding one small line of code to the wp-config file...

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

Defines the method by which files are served, evidently "Direct" is not the default method used by Wordpress.
