File and Directory Persmission are not checked by install.php
|Reported by:||hakre||Owned by:|
I personally and many other users according to the feedback I see and discuss in the support forums theses days encounter upgrade and installation problems because the file upload does not work. For version 2.5 this might escalate a lot, because there are numerous technical issues with a new uploader software that ships the first time with that version.
Anyway it would help a lot, if the install and/or upgrade script does check for the right persmissions in the wp-upload folder while upgrading / installing.
- The user php is executed under can access the directory
- That user can create a directory inside that directory
- That user can create a file inside that created direcotry
A simple mkdir and temporary file creation could verify that. If those tests fail, it would be a good idea to display a message. Maybe it's a good Idea as well to provide such a test inside the admin sothat the blogs setup can be checked later on as well.
