Support » Plugin: Insert Pages » directory permissions reset during update installation

  • Resolved netpassprodsr


    I have this plugin installed on multiple sites and noticed a pattern after installing updates: My WordPress toolkit would flag these instances as having a security fault that was not there prior to the update installation.
    After installation of an update, the directory permissions for this plugin were reset to 777 rather than the safer 755 for the path /wp-content/plugins/insert-pages and sub-directories.
    Is there a purpose for leaving the directory permissions set to 777 when the update installation is completed?
