    Hi I had a few issues with WP and I had to change the Write Permissions of WP. I googled the issue and I got a little confused.

    In laymans terms, what is the issue to change the write permissions - or said another way, what should the folders definitely NOT be for security reasons?

    Thanks

    All your folders should be 755 and files 644

    thanks -

    I checked the following folders:

    wp-admin
    wp-includes
    wp-content

    they are all 755 so am I good to go?

    My uploads folder within the content folder is 777 - is that not cool?

    thanks again
