I did a search about "write permissions" and "chmod" looking for information about assigning write permissions to the backup folder for "WordPress 1.2 One Click Backup" plugin. I have asked this question at the plugin page but am asking here as well because it seems that 1.2 is now obsolete and people will be downloading the backup plugin for 1.5.
I am quite new to php and was under the impression that one was supposed to avoid chmod666 and 777 like the plague. Would chmod 755 be enough of a "write" permission for the backup folder? And if not, should I be putting some sort of password permission on that folder and/or changing the chmod each time I want to use it?
I am reluctant to upgrade to 1.5 just yet - I've only JUST installed 1.2.2 in January and am on major overload with new procedures as it is.
