[Plugin: WP Super Cache] mod_suphp and wp-content writeable (1 post)

    This is a minor annoyance and in no way represents a problem.

    I've noticed on a couple of WordPress installs I look after, that if the host has mod_suphp installed (presumably similar too) WP Super Cache will report that wp-content and public_html are writeable.

    mod_suphp makes PHP run under the username of the account executing the PHP code, which means anything chmod'd 755 will natively be writeable due to the ownership permissions.

    Maybe for a future release, a way of detecting if mod_suphp (or similar) is installed and disable the wp-content and public_html permissions checks.

    Keep up the good work!
