Server and 777
I've been working on a script-based project and I hit a possible problem.
Since this is security-related this looks to be the forum to post in.
Basically to make the script work properly on the real server I need to set a folder's permissions to 777. The files inside are 644.
Now all of the files on the server are 755 or 644. None are 777.
777 permission allows for READ, WRITE & EXECUTE access by everyone.
This doesn't sound very safe to me, but I'm no expert on apache.
Would a folder with 777 permission be a dangerous hole in security ?
If so, I need to get started on another solution to that part of the code.
