What is in place to stop me from breaking my website - "The white screen of death"

When you edit a PHP file, before that file is saved to the filesystem it is syntax checked to make sure there isn't something obvious that will break your site.

Every file that you edit is backed up before your first save to the filesystem and then on subsequent saves WPide will try and make a backup. It will save a maximum of 1 backup per hour to the server.

As you edit or more specifically save PHP files the restore button will display which will allow you to restore the most recent backup.

If your WordPress install is fully functional then you can use the file tree to browse all of your backed up files (plugins/WPide/backups..), if your WordPress install isn't responding then restoring the file using the restore button or directly via FTP/SSH is the only way.

The backed up PHP files cannot be accessed/restored from the web directly without the 40 digit nonce/key so should not pose a security concern.

Can I override the default file permissions when creating files/directories on the local filesystem

Yes you can using the below WordPress settings in wp-config.php which will effect files created with WPide and files added during the WordPress upgrade process.

define('FS_CHMOD_DIR', (0755 & ~ umask())); define('FS_CHMOD_FILE', (0644 & ~ umask()));

Whenever I try to edit an image the application says that it could not load the image

Either the image contains no image data (its a new empty file) or the image is not accessible to the image editor. Your images need to be accessible to the web. i.e. if you're developing a site on your local machine behind a router/firewall your local web server could not be accessible to the web.
