Filebase folder and subfolders 777 permissions? (5 posts)

    Latest WP-Filebase release seems to create 777 permissions for filebase folder and all subsequent folders within. Shouldn't it be 755 at least for security's sake?

    Great plugin!!! The folder structure it creattes within a page is just wonderful.

    I get 777s as well (which I manually changed to 755), and my host automatically locks any site with 777 permissions, so please look into this?

    Ah - I see it is protected by htaccess... Ignore my previous comment.

    Depending on your webhost, I think 755 should work. My filebase folder is set to 755 and everything seems to work fine. 777 is a bad idea.

    755 causes issues on some servers. See wp-filebase.php:

    define('WPFB_PERM_FILE', 666);
    define('WPFB_PERM_DIR', 777);

    You can adjust these constants, but be aware that they will be reset on plugin update!
