  • Attachment directory permissions

    Hello all and apologies if this has been answered before but a quick search didn't return any useful results.

    I have set up VB to store attachments inside a subfolder, in the file system. Setting that folder and subfolders to 777 makes things work like a charm, but I don't feel comfortable knowing that there's a -rwx directory that users can easily upload things to. If I set it to 755, users can't upload anything.

    What is the optimal setting for this to work without opening a security hole?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    I've read that chmod 666 sometimes works as well, depending on how PHP is installed.

    I don't know the specifics, but worth a try.
