Permissions on public_html (2 posts)

    I have just tried installing WPMU rc 1. It asks me to change permissions tp 777 on wp-content and public_html.

    Is it not a huge security issue giving all those permissions to anybody that wants to use them.

    Can I change them back after installation or is there another workaround? Thanks

    Yes, you can change them back. There used to be a huge warning sign if they weren't fixed but that has been gone for quite a while.
    chmod 755 should be fine after it's installed. I'll update the README to that effect.
