View Full Version : File permissions

I have just upgraded to v1.5. Can anyone explain why files do not have the appropriate permissions when uploaded. I don't see any reference to the need to change file permissions in the ReadMe_upgrade.txt file.
Forgive me if I have missed something obvious. :)

the permissions are the same as in original installation
if you upgrade there should not be any necessarity to change permissions
have a look in the admin sections / general info
there you will see the information:
you need writing permission 777 for the images- and the thumbnail-folders
nothing changed (if you did not change anything or your hoster changed something)

I use 755. I think 777 should be more dangerous.

it is always depending on the configuration of the server.
Sometimes 755 is working and that is good.
Very often it is necessary to set it to 777 because the users who install and who use it are different, so it must be set to 777
it is good to start wiht 755 and check out if it is ok, you are right
