[Resolved] [Plugin: BackUpWordPress] Installation error: chmod 777 –> wp-content?!
I’ve looked through this forum and can’t see any posts related to my issue.
First time installing this plugin. I’ve received this message:
BackUpWordPress is almost ready. The backups directory can't be created because your wp-content directory isn't writable, run chown apache:apache /var/***/***/***/httpdocs/wp-content or chmod 777 /var/***/***/***/httpdocs/wp-content or create the folder yourself.
It can’t really be that this plugin requires the whole wp-content folder to be world writable, right?!
If this is true, I certainly will require consistent backups!
I’m thinking it is more likely a generic message, and really the plug in is having trouble creating a folder or something.
Is there anything I can do manually to assist the plugin and avoid leaving my whole site open for exploitation?
