Hi good folk of WP,
I have this issue. I moved my domain-host-server to 000webhost and went old school to manually install WordPress 2.7.1 . My blog is up and everything is functioning except.... the whole file permissions thing.
Since I use the free version of 000webhost, I don't have shell access to chown my files directly. 000webhost has provided an option to chmod/chown everything to the username that they provide, whereas when WordPress by default creates a directory/file etc it creates it with the user/group id 99/99. Is there a place where I can change the user/group that WordPress uses when trying to acces/create a directory/file ? Alternatively I've read that this can be done through php scripts? If so would anyone be so kind as to let me know how, I've tried searching around but haven't found a solution.
Many thanks in advance.
