[resolved] uploads folder permissions (Mute Screamer) (3 posts)

    One of my blogs was hacked recently and in troubleshooting it I discovered PHPIDS and the "Mute Screamer" plugin for WordPress. This is working great across all of my blogs... except for one.

    WHen I log in to the WordPress control panel I get the error "Mute Screamer requires that your uploads folder is writable."

    I have set the permissions to CHMOD 777 but the error remains. What permissions should I have set on the uploads directory?

    I resolved the issue myself. Under Settings > Media, the uploads folder was set incorrectly. It was never updated when I moved host, so the folder it was looking for did not exist. Perhaps Mute Screamer should be updated to give a more accurate error message.
