I installed the WP-DB-Backup Plugin and tried to backup my database. The following warning showed up:
WARNING: Your backup directory is NOT writable! We cannot create the backup files. Using your FTP client, try to set the backup directory’s write permission to 777 or a+w.
This seems like a big risk.
Should 755 be used and do I need to change it back to something else after the backup?
