The Webden on WordPress

Grrr… file permissions

Something is screwy with file permissions on the web server that hosts my church website (St Clements, Oxford). It looks like I will have to keep putting any files or images online myself. I’ve wrestled with it for a while but it isn’t making sense. Still at least the administrators in the office can post news items without my intervention.


  1. 777 is never a good idea… 🙁

    There is another php bodge I’m sure your aware of but which I’ve once resorted to on a test setup and I suspect the cause was an upgrade of something by the isp.

    • Even 777 didn’t work when I was testing. I think I would have to dig deeper to find the cause of the problem so, unless the requirement to manually upload becomes too onerous, I will stick with the existing method for now.
