[resolved] File Permissions, Broken Images, WordPress 3.7.1 (3 posts)

    Hi There,

    I have been asked to post a new issue rather than replying to an existing thread. The thread that I have been looking at is here:


    I am having the same problems as those within this thread, Images are broken within the media library, they are broken all the way through until you click on 'edit' once you do this you can view the image. The images are not appearing in posts and are un-useable. Strangely the media viewer can see a .txt file but not .png files or .txt files

    Is the only solution to change file permissions? It seems that the problem is quite common but haven't found a decisive fix yet?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, I fixed this by following instructions in the thread I linked to.

    File permissions were set as wrong numbers - not sure how secure this is?
