I have created a sites/domain/modules/apps-allow.info empty control file in my BOA-2.0.8 instance and run the reset password task. Yet when I attempt to install an app with Panopoly, I am prompted for FTP. Checking the Apps Configuration, webserver direct install is not enabled, says I need to "sudo chmod -R 777 sites/all/modules"

Besides the empty control file and the reset password task, what else needs done to use apps with BOA?

This is BOA specific.

It doesn't work as expected probably because of this known bug: #1970226: Folder permissions of {sites/all/} libraries, modules, and themes 755?

Run the hotfix as shown below, try it again and let us know if this helped:

chmod 02775 /data/disk/*/distro/*/*/sites/all/{modules,libraries,themes} &> /dev/null
chmod 02775 /data/all/*/*/sites/all/{modules,libraries,themes} &> /dev/null
