Backup folder does not exist and backup folder might be visible (4 posts)

    Hi Leslie,

    think this fell off the chart a couple of months back. i really hope to resolve this persistent issue this time round.

    i have two issues:
    (1) Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /home1/...
    (2) Backup folder does NOT exist. Please create 'backup-db' folder in '/home/...' folder and CHMOD it to '777' or change the location of the backup folder under DB Option.; and
    Backup folder is NOT writable. Please CHMOD it to '777'.

    for point 1 - i believe i have done the first - meaning moving the .htaccess file from the said directory to the new directory but the warning still persists. i read up about how to get rid of this on the support forum but i am not proficient enough to risk carrying out the procedure. plus, i am really not sure if I DID the correct thing.

    for point 2 - i am totally stumped (but i already have the backup-db folder there). my Host insists that i should not grant CHMOD 777 and it i think CHMOD 767 or something of sort is the best it could do in order not to "compromise the security" or so i was told.

    please help :(

    1. It is not that difficult, see the FAQ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-dbmanager/faq/
    2. Try what your host said, 767 to see if it works.

    Hi Lester,

    got number (1) done. previously, i must be day-dreaming. sorry about that.

    as for (2). now my host is saying that 755 is the best it can do. guess that won't help much isn't it? any advise?
