777 and export directory question (2 posts)

    I am wanting to upgrade to wp 3.3 but need to backup. I got this backup plugin. I am not certain if my site is chmod 777 or not, and I do not know what to enter for the Export Directory . . . is it looking for a path that is online (ie on the WP server) on on my computer?

    How can I check the 777 status, and change it if necessary? I am just learning all of this.

    I have looked over some other posts that were resolved, but didn't see the specific answers I'm asking here. Thanks for y'all's help.

    You have the plugin and activated it?
    If so, go in admin panel to: > Tools
    Select option > Backup
    You will see the > Backup options (scroll down on page)
    You have 3 options ...when you read it says exactly where it will go after you checked one of the 3 radio buttons.

    If you have no clue about CHMOD take option 2 or 3, because than you have nothing to do with chmodding the wp-content folder. (needs it only to have access to put a sql backup file you want to make)


    Note: click "topic solved" after you have read this, because there is no easier way to do as explained above.
