    During the installation, I needed to change the permissions on three directories.
    root/
    wp-inst/
    wp-content/
    What should the permisssions be after the install. Should they be set back to 755? or will can this cause problems with the functionality?

    is there a permissions table listed somewhere?

    Something that lists pre & post install permissions?

    Surely, this would be helpful to many ;)

    Its not documented anywhere that I can find.

    On my test server, I can set 777 only on wp-content/cache and wp-content/blogs.dir and I can find no ill effects (ymmv). Limiting permissions seems to be a very sane choice.

    Thanks itdamager! just so it's somewhere searchable on the system through this thread, would you mind listing the recommend permissions during initial install?

    Silly quick question. I don't have a cache subdirectory. Should I put one in there?
