WordPress Permission Issues (5 posts)

    I switched servers from shared hosting to a dedicated server and migrated everything over properly, the site is up everything is running fine. However, some of the plugins that need to write to certain files are unable to do so due to permission issues. I tried setting all the relevent files to 755 and still no luck. At that point I even tried setting the entire wp-content folder to 755 and still no luck. Is this something to do with the permissions on the dedicated server? is there a way that permissions need to be given to wordpress in a specific way?
    Please help,
    Thank you.

    No. You could try changing the permissions to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777.

    Hey Esmi,

    The 767 works actually, Thanks!
    But I just have a few questions regarding this permission setting. Is there any security danger in leaving the entire wp-content folder as 767? Even though it is on our dedicated server.

    Thank you!

    It's not ideal from a security perspective but it does also depend upon the server's security configuration generally.

    The dedicated server is under go daddy and they are the ones who set up the server itself. I am assuming it's safe? lol

    Thanks again.
