Automatic upgrade bug? (1 post)

    - Saw the message: "WordPress 2.7.1 is available! Please update now."
    - Clicked on link
    - I decided that I needed to do a backup first and not to proceed for now with the upgrade, so clicked back to site --> empty screen!!!
    - Went into /wp-admin, checked Plugins --> none!! (should be 4)

    - Panic, breathe deeply and slowly

    - Proceed with automatic upgrade --> lots of "permission denied" errors
    - CHMOD WP-CONTENT to 777
    - Proceed with automatic upgrade --> runs "forever"

    - Got tired of waiting, check Plugins --> all back, but deactivated
    - Reactivate Plugins, CHMOD WP-CONTENT back to 755, verify site --> seems OK.

    Questions:
    1. Is the automatic upgrade messing with the permission???
    2. What are the recommended file permissions for the various folders and files in WP?

    Thanks!
