Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress has a new owner: from admin to guess

  • Hi,

    Recently I did the upgrade to 3.01.

    Before the upgrade, whenever I uploaded a file or I updated a plugin, the files were store by “admin”.

    Now, after th upgrade to wordpress 3.01, the owner is “guest”.

    This is very enoying…! due to the fact that each time I want to upgrade / upload something I need to change permissions to 777 and then switch back to 755.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?

    Contact your hosting provider and ask them to CHOWN the files back to your user. If you’d like to prevent this in the future, ask your hosting provider to run suPHP.

    Thanks for your help, but the issue is that I’m hosting my own blog. I’m as well the administrator… and I didn’t do any change, besides the update!

    Any other ideas regarding why suddently the files are saved by “guest”?


    Any ideas how can I solve this issue?

    When ever I do a change (update a plugin, upload a picture) wordpress uses the user “guest” and not “admin” or my personal “user”.

    How do I change this?
