I'd like to know what permissions are needed for the file upload directory in WP. It's mentioned in the Wiki it has to be 766 but I'm not comfortable with assigning such permissions to a folder permanently in a shared hosting environment I will have to use.
Is there any other way of doing this (other than setting the permissions manually each time I upload!) ?
I think this should be part of the installation instructions on the Wiki.
Thanks for any comments on this.
