Hi there, I am currently having problems with the file permissions with all of my wordpress sites. I currently have to set everything to 777 to be able to do anything with my sites.
I have looked at the support codex and have checked that the owners of my files and folders are the same as my ftp username aswell as my wordpress username. I however do not know if the group the files and folders are part of have any affect. This problem has started after I had to move my sites to a new server and affects sites I migrated as well as a clean install of wordpress for a new site.
I am currently using smartFTP and plesk. Any help would be appreciated as making changes to my sites means changing the files permissions everytime.
