I am running Worpdress on an CentOS Webserver.
Now, to enable wordpress to be able to upload/write files to the default webserver directory
I had to do the following change on the server as root user:
[user@host ~]$ chown apache /path/to/upload/dir [user@host ~]$ chmod 755 /path/to/upload/dir
What security implications does this have?
I know I can move all my files to say the /home/ directory and point Apache to it, but it is too much effort...
Can I keep it like this or it it unsafe to do so?
