Upload Files Error - Changed Permissions

Postby apeterka » Tue Jan 14, 2014 8:59 am

I wasn't able to upload files as a reviewer until I changed the files directory permissions to Read, Write and Execute for the owner permissions. Everything I saw on the forums and documentation only mention Read and Write permissions. By having this directory set with Execute permission, am I opening myself to massive exploits? Or am I ok this way?

Thanks for any advice, Alan

Hi apeterka,

Directories with owners granted execute permissions should not cause security problems.
