I installed wordpress on my dedicated Godaddy server - Linux Cent OS with Plesk control panel). Here's my problem... when I try to upload files or plugins using the Wp dashboard I get error message -
“active_cruises.gif” has failed to upload due to an error Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/airportshuttlefinder.com/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads/2010/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
My wp-content directory is set to 755 but I had to create an "uploads" directory (set to 755) and "2010" directory (set to 777). Is setting the "2010" directory to 777 going to create a security hole? Can anyone suggest a safe work around. Godaddy is very strict about security and will shut down my server if there are any potential risks.
Thank you in advance for your help.
