Help...yes they all say that. I am an experienced WordPress user but can't fathom this.
I uploaded (ftp) about 7 plugins used on another site to a wordpress installation and instantly the permissions for the wordpress installation went wrong, plugins telling me they wouldn't work unless x or y directory was chmod to 755 or above when they already were. Inability to chmod directories recursively.
And now deleting or installing plugins within wordpress means I have to keep putting in my ftp details and pass
I have no idea what to do to get permissions working again
