Hello, It seems this new part of the forum opened just in time for me. I recently migrated my Wordpress sites to my KnownHost servers. For some reason I have to change the file permissions mydomain/wp-content/uploads to 777 to get the uploads to work for my sites to add images and such. Before I moved my sites it worked with file permission 755. Obviously I do not want this for security reasons. Before the migration my sites did not require this and worked with the 755 file permission. I'm wondering if it has something to do with my server configuration. For the time being I added this to an .htaccess file inside my uploads folder. Code: # secure uploads directory <Files ~ ".*\..*"> Order Allow,Deny Deny from all </Files> <FilesMatch "\.(jpg|jpeg|jpe|gif|png|tif|tiff)$"> Order Deny,Allow Allow from all </FilesMatch> Is that secure? With that code I thought it would limit the uploads folder to only allow image files. Also in the uploads folder Wordpress makes directories for images by year and month. Would I need to make an .htaccess file with the same code for each of these folders? If there is a change I can make on my server to allow the uploads from my Wordpress site but keep the file permissions to 755 that would be the best option for me.
