All up on WordPress. 2.5 Final Release


Been upgrading dozens of blogs in the last 24 hours to the latest WordPress 2.5 Final Release. Broke some of the custom hacks I previously done but all in all, it’s a worthwhile update. I just hope they’d find a way to do away with the chmod+777 folder permissions on the uploads as it’s causing people headaches with security issues and hack attempts.

    you can change it to 664 as long as you change the group to the apache process owner (some are nobody, some are apache, httpd)

    The WordPress /uploads/ folder requires it to be 777 in order for you to use the built-in web upload feature.
