The following is the directory listing for the data directory for WP Google Maps:
drwxrwsr-x 2 apache apache 4096 Jul 18 10:37 wp-google-maps
As you can see, it’s writable by “apache”, yet the plug-in complains, “File permissions:2775 – The plugin does not have write access to this folder. Please CHMOD this folder to 755 or 777, or change the location”.
I’ve seen other posts which suggest CHMODing to 777, but this is an insecure cop-out. Is WP Google Maps actually trying to write and failing, or is it just reading the permissions and not smart enough to realise it can actually write to the directory?
Thanks in advance.
