Sometime in June, my web host (routhost) enabled phpsuexec. I was actually very happy about this as the added security made good sense, but now the month of July rolls around and problems are cropping up.
Mainly, I cannot upload photos anymore. Whenever I try, I get the infamous “Could not create directory 07 …”
I checked my permissions and all my folders are 755. So after going back and forth with my host, I finally got the following reply.

The error that you were getting was bacause the script was unable to create folder within ‘public_html/blog/wp-content/uploads/2006. Now we have given 777 permission to folder ‘2006’ and upload works fine. As you know it is vulnerable but there are not much options to prevent this. The only thing that you can do is to change the folder permission back to 755 after uploading the images.

I was under the impression that with phpsuexec, this was not necessary.
Am I being lied to or is this really the truth?
Thanks in advance for any help. I have found so much useful info in these forums and finally found reason to register!
