    Was trouble-shooting a plugin. The author suggested wp-content and all files under needed to be chmod to 755.
    Did that and BAM...broke everything.

    Warning: opendir(/var/www/wp/wp-content/mu-plugins) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: Permission denied in /var/www/wp/wp-includes/load.php on line 428

    Line 428 of load.php is:
    if ( ! $dh = opendir( WPMU_PLUGIN_DIR ) )

    Obviously, my permissions under wp-content are all messed up...how do I get them back?
    Thanks!

    Change it back to what it was.

    Thanks...how does one go back?

  4. If you can't remember what it was before you changed it to 755... ask your webhost what they should be.

    One minor problem...I am the webhost.
    Guess I am just screwed.

    I got rid of the error...messed around with permissions until it came back.
    Now the main blog works (I have to re-activate all my plugins), but the sub-blogs just give a 404 file not found error.
    Help please! You'll get good karma!
