Support » Fixing WordPress » Odd permissions problem w/ Theme Editor

  • 2 sites, both WP 1.5

    Site 1 – sidebar.php set to 755 – Theme Editor says not writeable – must change to 777 before Theme Editor can write to it

    Site 2 – sidebar.php set to 644 – Theme Editor says writeable! I can edit and changes are saved!

    This makes no sense to me……

    any ideas?

    I have one site where my files have to be 666 to be edited and another where 644 is okay.

    Whoever you are hosted with for Site 1 seems not to take security very seriously. Consider moving.

    a) it’s always good to upgrade – the latest stable is 1.5.2
    b) are the sites on the same server? I assume not, so it might be a server settings issue
