Permissions Question (4 posts)

    I can't use the media uploader because I have permissions set to 755 in the wp-content directory. (It errors out with a permissions warning)

    According to this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Image_and_File_Attachments It says I need to set them to 777.

    Isn't this suicide? Isn't there another way to use the media uploader with permissions set to 755?

    why should it be a suicide??
    If the directory is not writable, how could you upload your contents?

    Hi,

    Assign 766 permissions if you are not good with 777 due to hacking risk. 766 recursive permissions to wp-content folder will resolve the problem.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    766 it is then, thank you. I get really concerned about 777. That's begging for death death on a server.
