I was unabel to upload images to a fresh build of wordpress 3.5
I was getting an error as below:
"Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"
While searching through the forum, I found a work around to change the file permission of wp-content folder to 777, and then try uploading. After uploading, it mentioned that I have to change the file permission for wp-content to 755.
I followed the above method and was able to upload the image. Now I have revert back wp-content folder permission to 755. But the uploads folder it created (and its sub-folders) have permission 777. Is it safe to leave the permission for uploads folder and its directories with this permission?
