I need to tell a web host that does not have a cPanel or formally support WordPress precisely what is needed for file permissions for a Windows box.
I had kind of a rugged time doing a test install to a subdirectory, and then could not install an uploaded theme because WP couldn't create a directory.
I'd like to install WP to the root and upload a theme.
Does anyone know what I should be telling them?
I'm on a Mac at home, and when I've worked with WordPress other times, the web host always had a cPanel install.
